Aside from our vehicles, we recognize that driver habits must be focused upon in order to conserve fuel and therefore, we have focused driver training heavily on this subject.
We have implemented three main tactics within their training to accomplish this:
- Instituted strict and verifiable policies regarding engine idling and speed
- Implemented an aggressive recycling and energy conservation program company wide
- All coaches have the ability to automatically generate and mail email advisories to PWT management for both engine speed and idling (speed over 100 km/h and idling in excess of 5 minutes)
