How did we get here and what is next?
The Colorado Clean Truck Strategy’s objective is to transition Colorado’s medium- and heavy-duty trucks to low- and zero-emissions alternatives. This plan focuses Colorado efforts in the near future on:
- Investing in charging infrastructure
- Creating incentives for truck fleets to start switching to zero emissions vehicles
- Helping school districts and transit agencies switch to electric buses
The strategy will help fight climate change, improve air quality, and especially help communities disproportionately impacted by transportation pollution emissions.
Using input from multiple public meetings, stakeholder groups, and the Colorado Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicle Study, the agencies developed a draft strategy to accelerate clean truck adoption in the state that recognized the increasing importance of freight to the economy. From August of 2020 through April of 2022, the state received over 120 comments. The finalized strategy addresses a number of these comments through edits or adoption of suggestions. A summary of public input and agency response can be found in the Public Comment Response Memo. All comments submitted via email can be found in the shared folder here.
Agencies will continue collaborating with stakeholders and implementing near-term actions in the Clean Truck Strategy. Some of the upcoming next steps and ways stakeholders can stay involved include:
- Implementation of the Clean Transit Enterprise 10-Year plan
- Implementation of the Clean Fleet Enterprise 10-Year Plan
- Implementation of the Community Access Enterprise 10-Year Plan
- Stakeholder outreach for the Advanced Clean Trucks and Low NOx rule development
State agencies anticipate updating the strategy every two years to respond to the evolving market and lessons learned from implementation of the near-term actions.
