Engine Idling Reduction Program for Snow Resort Fleet

My Sustainable Canada, the Centre for Sustainable Transportation, along with a research team from the University of Waterloo helped Blue Mountain Resort, Horseshoe Resort and Glen Eden Ski and Snowboard Centre discover how much fuel their vehicle fleet uses and how they can save money and help the environment through eco-driving and maintenance practices. Over 30 vehicle monitoring devices were installed among light and medium duty vehicles at the 3 ski resorts. These devices measure trip-time, distance, average speed, fuel use, idling time and other driver behaviours.
