New York Joins Multi-State Pact to Ramp Up Market for Electric Buses and Trucks

Order Reprints...

New York, along with 14 other states and the District of Columbia, will develop an action plan to ramp up electrification of buses and trucks. In a joint memorandum of understanding, New York State committed to work collaboratively to accelerate the market for electric medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, including large pickup trucks and vans, delivery trucks, box trucks, school and transit buses and long-haul delivery trucks.

“Reducing pollution from medium- and heavy-duty vehicles will result in cleaner air for New Yorkers, particularly low-income neighborhoods and communities of color that have historically and disproportionately borne the brunt of the worst environmental consequences,” said Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “This multi-state agreement furthers the critical leadership roles of the states in combatting climate change.”

Signatories of the MOU are: California, Connecticut, Colorado, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Washington and the District of Columbia.
