Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI)


A regional collaboration of 12 Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states and the District of Columbia that seeks to improve transportation, develop the clean energy economy and reduce carbon emissions from the transportation sector. 


The Murphy Administration is committed to advancing equitable policies that limit emissions of climate pollutants and improve air quality, while building a clean energy economy that benefits all residents and protects our communities from the challenges of our changing climate. New Jersey has participated alongside sister states throughout the northeast and mid-Atlantic in evaluating the design of the Transportation and Climate Initiative Program (TCI-P), a regional effort intended to reduce vehicle emissions through a surcharge on fuel suppliers that would be reinvested in clean transportation programs. While New Jersey will not be an initial signatory state in the TCI-P, as announced on December 21, 2020, it will continue to evaluate the potential role of TCI-P in New Jersey’s climate change mitigation strategy.
