The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) is proposing to modify the tariff for operating at its marine terminals to deny access to trucks with model year 1994 and 1995 engines, effective January 1, 2018, and to require that, from March 1 this year, new trucks seeking to serve the port terminals must be equipped with a 2007 or newer model year engine.

PANYNJ has also announced that it will commit $1.2m to supplement the $9m the joint agency expects to receive in federal funding to assist port truckers operating older trucks to buy newer, more environmentally friendly vehicles.
