URGENT ALERT: Truck And Bus Regulation Reporting System Available For 2016 Reporting
Friday, January 22, 2016
Posted by: Dave Murillo
The Truck and Bus regulation reporting system has been updated for fleets to select/re-select their 2016 options. January 1 of every compliance year, fleet owners that use flexibility options in the regulation must identify which vehicles will use a particular extension and provide any additional information as required. We encourage fleets to report early, before the January 31, 2016 reporting deadline. The Online User Guide has also been updated and is available at:
Who Needs to Report for 2016?
• Vehicle owners that have already reported must update vehicle and owner information as it changes.
• Vehicle owners that want to continue using a flexibility option or wish to opt-in to one of the limited flexibility options available must report by January 31, 2016.
• Vehicle owners using mileage-based extensions must report the vehicle’s January 1st odometer reading by January 31, 2016.

The regulation requires diesel trucks and buses that operate in California to be upgraded to reduce emissions. Newer heavier trucks and buses must meet PM filter requirements beginning January 1, 2012. Lighter and older heavier trucks must be replaced starting January 1, 2015. By January 1, 2023, nearly all trucks and buses will need to have 2010 model year engines or equivalent.
The regulation applies to nearly all privately and federally owned diesel fueled trucks and buses and to privately and publicly owned school buses with a gross vehicle weight rating
(GVWR) greater than 14,000 pounds. This regulation does not apply to drayage trucks that transport marine containers. The regulation provides a variety of flexibility options tailored to fleets operating in cleaner rural areas, low-use vehicles, certain vocational trucks, and small fleets of three or fewer trucks. Some options are no longer available if you did not claim to use them as required.
