The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), in collaboration with other state agencies, must create and maintain a database of vehicle registrations in the Commonwealth. The database must contain the total number of registrations for:

  • Passenger fossil fuel-powered vehicles;
  • Passenger hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs);
  • Passenger zero emission vehicles (ZEVs);
  • Commercial fossil fuel-powered vehicles;
  • Commercial HEVs; and,
  • Commercial ZEVs.

The database must also track the annual number of vehicle miles traveled per vehicle type. Beginning January 1, 2035, MassDOT must update the database and publish a data summary report annually.
