More than 3,500 large trucks cross Donner Pass each day. When trucks are delayed due to poor wintery weather conditions, between $5 and $7 million dollars is lost each hour.
To minimize these losses, CTA has partnered for more than a decade with CalTrans’ Pusher Truck Program to keep driving our economy forward.
The Pusher Truck Program helps commercial vehicles make it through the Donner Pass in snowy weather conditions at no cost to the companies assisted. Voluntary donations and the tireless efforts of CTA members, the California Highway Patrol and Caltrans have kept this program alive. Without the pusher trucks, restrictions may be imposed against commercial vehicle travel during snowstorms.
