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.
Between 2012 and 2020, the HPCTP funded a total 622 trucks, including 592 truck replacements, 6 exhaust retrofits, and the voluntary scrappage of 24 trucks. 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.

Since the program began in 2012, we have distributed more than $17.3 million in incentives to help fund the replacement of 592 older, diesel trucks.

Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program Truck Activity in NYC
Replacement trucks were outfitted with an Automatic Vehicle Locator (AVL) to monitor truck activity for compliance with the Hunts Point Clean Trucks Program requirements. The map only illustrates trucks participating in the program and does not portray truck activity from other commercial trucks. The map shows truck activity, by time of day, throughout the five boroughs of New York City on April 4, 2019. In addition to tracking program compliance, the AVL mapping identifies communities that are benefiting from the emission reductions as a result of replacing older, polluting diesel-fueled trucks.
