About Smart Drive Challenge

  • What Is It?
  • How Does It Work?

Personal transportation can have a significant impact on both our finances and climate change.

Emissions from our vehicles are impacting our climate, and increasing fuel costs means more money spent on our vehicles. The Smart Drive Challenge wants to change all that. Smart Drive Challenge recognizes and addresses the importance of changing personal transportation behaviours NOW. With many Canadians feeling cash-strapped and car dependant, it is important to show them ways to save fuel, money and reduce emissions while they are behind the wheel of their current vehicle. Then, for those who are interested, further action can be taken by switching to lower emission vehicles and more sustainable modes of transportation.

Smart Drive Challenge does this through a free online education-based learning hub that will educate and empower Canadians to:

  • Make their current vehicle use more efficient through improved driving techniques and vehicle maintenance;
  • Increase their awareness and use of low and zero emission vehicles; and
  • Support and increase their use of sustainable transportation options

Smart Drive Challenge is available across Canada and is working with established stakeholders and partners to encourage the greatest reach and impact possible. Over the long term, participant results and feedback will help continue to expand the program’s impact and inform policies to help reduce fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions.
