Interstate Clean Transportation Corridor


The ICTC is the nation’s most successful project dedicated to developing the market for clean, heavy-duty natural gas and other alternative fueled vehicles in interstate goods movement.  The project has worked with dozens of private fleets, public fleets, and funding agencies to develop a planned network of alternative fuel user fleets and public access stations with the aim of linking Los Angeles, the San Joaquin Valley, Sacramento, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Reno and Salt Lake City along I-80, I-5, CA-99, I-10 and I-15.   This ICTC network will create a triangular corridor that provides alternative fuel coverage for over 1,800 miles along some of the nation's busiest interstate highways.

To date, the ICTC has secured $63.1 million dollars to:

  • Develop 28 alternative fuel stations;
  • Deploy 759 heavy-duty and 160 light duty natural gas and LPG vehicles to utilize this alternative fuel infrastructure;
  • Eliminate 27.8 million gallons of diesel consumption each year;
  • Reduce emissions of priority pollutants (NOx and PM) by  1,585 tons annually; and
  • Generate $148 million in economic activity.

The ICTC Steering Committee is comprised of members from U.S. Department of Energy (Office of Transportation Technologies and Clean Cities Program); U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (Region IX); California Energy Commission; California Air Resources Board; San Bernardino Associated Governments, South Coast Air Quality Management District; Mojave Desert Air Quality Management District, and the Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District. 

ICTC has worked with local and national fleets to develop successful alternative fuel vehicle and station projects, including key partnerships with companies such as Burrtec Waste Industries, the City of Barstow, the City of San Bernardino, Harris Ranch, Hayday Farms, Hunter and Hunter Trucking, Stater Bros Markets, Sysco Foods, Temecula Downs, United Parcel Service, and Waste Management.

With such strong participation, ICTC continues to demonstrate the successes that can be achieved through strong public-private partnerships.
