Important Note About MOVES Versions

MOVES2010b and previous versions of MOVES2010 have been replaced by MOVES2014 and MOVES2014a. Versions of MOVES2010 can be still be used for transportation conformity analyses during a two-year grace period ending on October 7, 2016.

In general, states should use EPA’s latest model, MOVES2014a, for new SIP development or transportation conformity analyses outside of California to take advantage of the improvements that have been included in it. However, as MOVES2014a does not significantly change the criteria pollutant emissions result from MOVES2014, in general, states can continue to use that model as well.  

Users should consult the Federal Register Notice of Availability for MOVES2014 and the Policy Guidance on the Use of MOVES2014 and Subsequent Minor Revisions (both available on the MOVES2014a page) before doing any additional work with MOVES2014 or any version of MOVES2010.
