Expanding the Success of the NYC DOT Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program
The NYC DOT launched the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program in 2012 to replace, retrofit, or scrap heavy-polluting diesel trucks from the South Bronx and NYC. Since its inception, the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program has provided incentive funding for the replacement, retrofit, or scrappage of over 622 older heavy-polluting diesel trucks from the South Bronx business communities of Hunts Point and Port Morris.
In 2020, NYC DOT expanded the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program to provide funding for applicants in program-approved New York City IBZs across the city. To symbolize this broader funding opportunity, the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program is now the NYC Clean Trucks Program.
Since the launch of NYC Clean Trucks Program in June 2020 through June 2023, the NYC Clean Trucks Program has funded a total of 67 truck replacements. Between 2012 and 2020, the HPCTP funded a total of 622 trucks, including 592 truck replacements, 6 exhaust retrofits, and the voluntary scrappage of 24 trucks. The combined total of truck replacements from 2012 to 2023 is 659. The NYC Clean Trucks Program and the HPCTP reduced levels of NOx, PM2.5, HC and CO annually as compared to the emissions generated from the older, diesel-fueled vehicles that were replaced.

Vehicle Miles Traveled and Program Compliance
Each program funded truck is equipped with an Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) to monitor the truck for program compliance. Program funded trucks are required to operate within, or service, program-approved Industrial Business Zones (IBZs) at least two times per week, as well as maintain 70% of total Vehicle Miles Traveled (VMT) within the Tri-State Area of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
