Truck Replacement Program

The 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, more fuel-efficient trucks.

About the Truck Replacement Program

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 Regional TRP) 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 – up to a maximum of $25,000 per truck. To be eligible for the 2015 Regional TRP, trucker owners must regularly call on Port Authority of New York and New Jersey marine terminals and commit to serving the port for at least five years. The 2015 Regional TRP is expected to launch in Spring 2015. The 2015 Regional TRP is an important component of the Clean Air Strategy for the Port of New York and New Jersey. Check back at this site for 2015 Regional TRP specifics toward the end of March 2015.

Who Is Eligible

Independent owner operators or licensed motor carriers that own port drayage trucks with engine Model Years 1994-2006 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, more fuel-efficient 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.
    • Starting January 1, 2017, only drayage trucks equipped with engines that meet or exceed 2007 federal emission standards will be allowed access to the Port Authority’s marine terminals.
    • The 2015 Regional TRP provides a mechanism for eligible participants to scrap and replace their trucks equipped with engine Model Years 1994-2006 with newer, cleaner models and continue drayage operations at the Port Authority’s marine terminals.
