New York Truck and Voucher

The New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYTVIP), administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), helps make it easier for fleets to adopt clean vehicle technologies while removing the oldest, dirtiest diesel engines from New York roads. NYTVIP provides vouchers, or discounts, to fleets across New York State that purchase or lease all-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), conventional hybrid electric (HEV), compressed natural gas (CNG), or propane medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (weight class 3 through 8) and scrap a similar older diesel vehicle that is part of their fleet.

VW Funds in California thru San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District

The VW Mitigation Trust has $130 million in funds to replace older, high-polluting transit, school, and shuttle buses with new battery-electric or fuel-cell buses. Replacing an older bus with a zero-emission bus eliminates particulate matter and other pollutants that impact children and residents riding the buses, as well as residents throughout California communities. During the project’s 10-year period, approximately 425 vehicles will be replaced with an incentive amount of up to $400,000 per vehicle.

The Transit and Intercity Rail Capital Program (TIRCP) was created by Senate Bill (SB) 862 (Chapter 36, Statutes of 2014) and modified by Senate Bill 9 (Chapter 710, Statutes of 2015), to provide grants from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund (GGRF) to fund transformative capital improvements that will modernize California’s intercity, commuter, and urban rail systems, and bus and ferry transit systems, to significantly reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, vehicle miles traveled, and congestion. There have been three prior cycles of TIRCP funding, in which the California State Transportation Agency (CalSTA) has awarded $5.3 billion in funding to 56 projects throughout the state.
