Are your Drivers SmartDRIVERS?
The land of Mounties and maple syrup, lakes and forests, and - like every other major city in the world -smog and congestion. As Canadians we strive to protect our environment, but we also want to save money if possible. The SmartDRIVER project accomplishes both. This paper tells you a bit about how it came about, the results and how we are now sharing it with the rest of the world to provide better bussing and fuel efficient transportation. Reducing fuel costs to free up operating funds for further training or other initiatives is a dream come true for most systems. The instant return on investment is realized as soon as an operator is put through the training. Maintenance personnel drive vehicles too and would benefit from SmartDRIVER training. Every little bit helps.
