- The California Air Resources Board (CARB) released its Clean Miles Standard, a plan which works to regulate the emissions of ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft
- Drivers for these companies tend to contribute to carbon emissions and traffic congestion because they are often driving around without passengers to transport
- The new plan calls for the electrification of their fleet by 2030, regulates the emissions of miles driven by rail hailing drivers, and calls for these companies to invest in bike lanes and help improve public transportation
- These new rules take effect in 2023
The Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California Campaign includes measures for clean transportation systems. For a safe and healthy future for all, endorse the Climate-Safe California Platform to implement scalable solutions that can reverse the climate crisis.
