This 3-day workshop improves drivers’ knowledge to help transit companies lower fuel consumption, maintenance costs and its fleets’ impact on air quality.

Drivers learn how to minimize vehicle wear and tear with smooth operating practices that help lower repair and replacement expenses. The training also promotes defensive driving techniques, because fuel-efficient drivers are also safe drivers.
