Recruitment for the Metro Vancouver “Smart Drive Challenge” has now begun! Metro Vancouver is now taking applications to recruit 200 drivers for a seven-week driving study to reduce fuel consumption, save money and cut air emissions.
The Metro Vancouver Smart Drive Challenge challenges drivers to use 15 percent less fuel through efficient driving techniques and feedback from a "smart" device connected to their vehicle’s computer. The wireless device tracks anonymized fuel consumption and vehicle movement information, which can be viewed on an online dashboard once the challenge begins.
The goal of the study is to better understand the effectiveness of training and feedback in helping drivers reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Following this pilot, results will be analysed and used as a basis for developing future programs.
Residents within the Metro Vancouver region are welcome to apply, including your staff and family members/friends.
