Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Eco-Driving Project

Wisconsin Clean Cities (WCC) received CMAQ program funding and is partnering with Waukesha County Technical College (WCTC) to offer over-the-road trucks eco-driving training. Eco-driving involves learning techniques to maximize a vehicle's energy efficiency.

The drivers will be taught eco-driving skills such as progressive shifting, efficient route planning, vehicle checklists, emission reduction, anti-idling practices, and other fuel saving tips. The class consists of time in a simulator where the software can be customized. Drivers will also receive "behind the wheel-on the road" training with licensed trainers. Drivers will be evaluated before and after the course. Evaluations will be completed on a simulator and drivers will return 2-4 weeks after the initial class for final simulator evaluation.

Through driver awareness eco-driving should result in reduced fleet fuel consumption and vehicle miles traveled therefore increasing productivity, lowering fuel costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions in SE Wisconsin.
