Regional Truck Replacement Program

Notice: At this time, only applications for replacement trucks with engines model year 1994 and 1995 will be accepted.  Also, at this time, applicants may apply for grant funding for more than two (2) replacement trucks.

This agency is committed to protecting the environment as it operates some of the region's most vital transportation infrastructure. Recently approved by the agency’s Board of Commissioners, the 2015 Regional Truck Replacement Program (2015 RTRP) is funded by a $2 million federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement (CMAQ) Program grant. It will cover up to 50 percent of the cost of a replacement truck or a maximum of $25,000, whichever is less. The 2015 RTRP is now accepting grant funding applications on a first-come-first-served basis with priority on replacing older heaviest emitting trucks first, specifically trucks with 1994 or 1995 engines. Therefore, for the present time, only applications for replacement of trucks with engines model year 1994-1995 will be accepted. Click here for examples of how to identify Engine Model Year. The application process may take from 45 to 60 days before one can receive their new truck. Applicants are encouraged to apply today as funding is limited to $2 million. Applicants may only apply for grant funding for a maximum of two (2) replacement trucks.

About the Truck Replacement Program

Who Is Eligible

Independent owner operators or licensed motor carriers that own port drayage trucks with engine Model Years 1994-1995 that frequently serve the port, which is defined as at least 150 times in the last 12 months, and who agree to continue to service the port frequently with the replacement truck for five years. Replacement trucks must have engines that meet or exceed 2007 federal emission standards. The old truck must be scrapped.

Benefits

Qualified applicants receive multiple benefits by participating in the 2015 Regional TRP. These benefits include:

  • Newer Cleaner Vehicle
    • Newer trucks are often equipped with cleaner, lower emitting engines.
  • Continued Drayage Service at the Port
    • To reduce diesel truck emissions as well as improve health and safety, the Port Authority implemented a plan to phase out older trucks serving its marine terminals.
    • Beginning March 1, 2016, only Drayage Trucks that are equipped with an engine that meets or exceeds federal Environmental Protection Agency on-road emission standards for 2007 model year heavy-duty diesel-fueled engines shall be permitted to complete registration in the DTR via the PortTruckPass website.
    • Beginning January 1, 2018, no Container Terminal Facility shall permit access into any Port Authority Terminal by any Drayage Truck equipped with an engine of model year 1995 or older. The 2015 Regional TRP provides a mechanism for eligible participants to scrap and replace their trucks equipped with engine Model Years 1994-1995 with newer, cleaner models and continue drayage operations at the Port Authority’s marine terminals.

The initial truck replacement program was open to new applications from 2010 to 2013. As a result of this program, the Port Authority succeeded in disbursing all of the federal grant money to replace a total of 429 old, dirty trucks, which were scrapped and replaced with newer, cleaner trucks.
