The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is committed to transforming operations at our facilities with environmental initiatives that safeguard our natural resources. Through the implementation of the Truck Replacement Program at the Port of New York and New Jersey, the Port Authority is working to reduce diesel truck emissions by offering eligible applicants grant funds towards the purchase of a newer, cleaner truck to replace their older, higher emitting truck. In addition, we are phasing out the oldest trucks serving our marine terminals.
Truck Engine Model Year 1998 Phase Out Starting in July 2023
Starting July 3, 2023, trucks with model year 1998 engines or older will be denied access to the Port of New York and New Jersey marine terminals. Eligible applicants who own a truck equipped with a 1998-2006 model year engine can receive grant funding for up to 50 percent of the purchase price or a maximum of $25,000 per truck (whichever is less) of a replacement truck equipped with a 2014 model year engine or newer.
Starting July 3, 2023, only trucks equipped with a 2014 engine model year, or newer, meeting EPA emission standards are permitted to register for Port access at https://portruckpass.emodal.com.
By providing grant funding to qualified drayage truck owners towards the purchase of newer, cleaner, more fuel-efficient trucks, the Port of New York and New Jersey’s Truck Replacement Program aims to continue to decrease diesel emissions as cargo volumes continue to increase.
