The Countywide Clean Truck Initiative (CCTI) is a response to Metro’s recognition for an urgent need to develop a regional strategy that will accelerate the deployment of near-zero and zero-emission trucks on Los Angeles County highways and arterials to reduce diesel emissions from trucks and improve associated health impacts. Stakeholders will be actively engaged throughout the process to develop a strategy and an investment plan that are founded on current state of technology, infrastructure needs and community needs. It is recognized as one of the early action items resulting from the LA County Goods Movement Strategic Plan, and it supports Metro’s Vision 2028 Goals and advances Equity Platform.
At its January 2020 meeting, Metro Board passed Motion 8.1 directing staff to develop 710 Clean Truck Program as an Early Action Item under both the Goods Movement Strategic Plan (Plan) and I-710 South Corridor Project. I- 710 is a nation’s critical goods movement corridor with a heavy truck volume. Communities along the corridor has disproportionately suffered from poor air quality and associated health impacts. As a first step in realizing the CCTI, Metro will focus on advancing the I-710 Clean Truck Program.
