TRUCK BAN – Port of New Jersey

A Truck Ban will begin January 1, 2018. All Drayage Trucks with an engine dated 1995 or older will NOT be permitted access into any Port Authority Terminal at the Ports of New York & New Jersey. This ban is aimed at reducing diesel truck emissions as well as improving overall health and safety. The Truck Replacement Program (TRP) will allows applicants to apply for grant funding to replace up to two trucks. The replacement trucks must have engines that meet or exceed 2007 federal emission standards and the old trucks must be scrapped. The program is open to engine Model Years from 1994 to 2000, however at this time the ban only applies to engines dated 1995 or earlier. We expect this program to continue and each year you will see older trucks be banned from the port.
