Public Workshop on the Clean Miles Standard
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) held a public workshop on Thursday, November 19, 2020, to invite input on CARB’s development of the Clean Miles Standard, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from transportation network company (TNC) services. Staff presented updated GHG and electric vehicle miles traveled (eVMT) targets and flexibilities. Staff requests stakeholder comments following the workshop to be submitted to email@example.com by December 11, 2020.
A presentation and any additional workshop-related documents was posted prior to the workshop on CARB’s Clean Miles Standard website.
This public meeting was conducted via GoToWebinar and the recording is available. Registration was required as an attendee prior to the start of the workshop using the link provided. After registering, participants received a confirmation email with information about joining the webinar.

Senate Bill (SB) 1014 (Skinner, Chapter 369, Statutes of 2018) – the Clean Miles Standard and Incentive Program – requires CARB to develop and the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to implement a GHG reduction program for TNCs. As part of SB 1014, CARB established a base year GHG emission inventory in January 2020 for the TNC sector on a per-passenger-mile basis. SB 1014 directs CARB to adopt annual GHG per passenger mile reduction and annual percent eVMT targets for TNCs. The proposed regulation allows for a variety of options to achieve GHG goals through increased use of zero-emission vehicles, increased pooling, improving efficiency, as well as connecting passengers to mass transit.
This regulation will be designed to support the goals set forth in SB 32, which requires California to reduce GHG emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. The transportation sector is the largest source of GHG emissions, contributing nearly 50 percent of the GHG emissions in California when accounting for fuel production and distribution. Light-duty vehicles make up approximately three-quarters of California’s transportation sector GHG emissions. In 2018, TNCs contributed approximately 1 percent of the GHG emissions in the light-duty vehicle sector.
