SmartWay® is a voluntary, public-private program by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that helps the freight industry reduce fleet emissions, improve fuel economy, and increase energy efficiency. The SmartWay program includes four major elements: SmartWay Transport Partnership, SmartWay Technology Program, SmartWay Vehicles, and SmartWay International Interests.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) joined the SmartWay Transport Program as an Affiliate in October 2006. In this role, NCTCOG promotes SmartWay initiatives within the region by providing educational outreach to potential partners and affected industries.

NCTCOG encourages local freight fleets to join the program and improve environmental performance while enjoying the many benefits partners and companies receive.
