Concern was expressed about the impact of local truck traffic on residents’ and workers’ health. In order to tackle sources of mobile pollution, the routing and fleet compositions of trucks and buses should be examined to identify ways to minimize vulnerable populations’ exposure to emissions.

A potential source of support for this is the NY Truck Voucher Incentive Program.
