Project Description: Truck and Bus Rule Compliance, and Reporting System (TRUCRS)
Location: Southern California
Agency: California Air Resources Board (CARB)
Date: December 2018
TES, Inc worked with a large fleet operator to maintain compliance with the Truck and Bus Rule. Data for the large fleet was entered into the TRUCRS reporting website. Once fleet information was completed, it was determined that small group of vehicles where deemed non-compliant. TES worked with the large feet operator to determine solutions to come into compliance. Individuals, private companies, and Federal agencies that own diesel vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) greater than 14,000 lbs. are impacted by CARB’s Truck and Bus regulation. The TRUCRS website determines compliance without detailing any problem areas or how to come into compliance. For many fleet owners, reporting within the TRUCRS website can be a confusing task, as well as understanding exactly what CARB is requiring. TES, Inc. worked with the client and directly with CARB to recover and provide documentation that demonstrated that the vehicles in question can each fall under a flexibility option. TES worked with client and CARB to resolve Notice of Non-Compliance and resolved all outstanding issues to avoid any Notice of Violation.
