Locomotives and Rail


The Locomotive and Rail sector like many of our other WCC sectors help move the goods we need. Yet this sector poses a particular risk to communities as people often live near rail yards. Thus, it is important to focus on reducing locomotive and rail emissions for the sake of community health. This page provides information on current and potential emissions reduction projects in the West Coast region. Efforts to reducing rail emissions focus on topics that include reducing emissions through idle reduction, emerging technologies, exploring innovative financing mechanisms, leveraging federal funds, and sharing lessons learned regarding technologies and best practices. The WCC also funds a variety of Locomotive and Rail Projects and administers EPA funding programs such as the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) program.
