The objective of the Trucking Sector Workgroup is to share information about current and potential emissions reduction projects along the West Coast. The workgroup focuses on strategies to reduce emissions along major transportation corridors and near population centers by providing information on topics that include innovative financing, public & private funding, technology developments, and use of alternative fuels to reduce emissions.
