Notice of comment period: Rolling Truck Age Program
From April 11 to 29, 2022, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is seeking comments from Truck Licensing System (TLS) participants, associations, industry stakeholders, First Nations, local governments, and community organizations who have an interest in the implementation of the Rolling Truck Age Program.
As we communicated in a letter to TLS participants, associations, and other industry stakeholders on January 14, 2022, the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority has deferred the implementation of the Rolling Truck Age Program, originally planned for February 1, 2022, for a period of no less than 90 days. During this time, we have been engaging with industry and community stakeholders to seek input to help inform a revised implementation plan for the program.
We are undertaking this engagement in response to concerns that some truck owners have expressed regarding the implementation timeline for the program, and a letter from Transport Minister Omar Alghabra asking the port authority to consider a short delay to the implementation date, and to provide a further opportunity for feedback regarding the implementation of the program.
During this second round of engagement, we are seeking feedback regarding a revised implementation plan, which has been developed in consideration of input provided during the first phase of engagement in February 2022.
How to provide feedback
The engagement discussion guide outlines what we heard during phase 1 engagement, and outlines the revisions to the implementation plan for your comment.

How your input will be used
We will consider input received as we finalize the revised implementation plan for the Rolling Truck Age Program.
