MS523B: Truck Regulation Upload Compliance and Reporting System (TRUCRS) for School Bus Fleets
The Truck and Bus Regulation (Regulation) does not require reporting for school buses, but most state grant funding programs require fleets to comply with the regulation to be eligible for funding. As part of the grant application process, the local jurisdiction or the state agency may ask the school bus owners to report their fleet in CARB’s Truck Regulation Upload, Compliance and Reporting System (TRUCRS) in order to verify compliance. This training will cover how to create a new account, logging into an existing account and how to report fleet and bus information.

Transport Refrigeration Units

MS507: Transport Refrigeration Units

Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs) are used on semi-trailers, truck vans, shipping containers, and rail cars. Most TRUs are diesel-powered. Although TRU engines are relatively small, significant numbers of these engines congregate at distribution centers, truck stops, and other facilities, resulting in exposure to diesel particulate matter (PM) and health risks to those that live and work nearby. To reduce the risks of exposure to diesel PM from TRUs, owners, operators, dispatchers, and distribution centers must comply with the TRU Air Toxic Control Measure (ATCM).
