ACTUATE eco-driving training materials

By Lewis Macdonald / Updated: 13 Jul 2017

The ACTUATE project has released a series of training materials designed to teach public transport staff about how to drive clean vehicles efficiently and safely.

The materials are aimed at trolleybus, hybrid bus and tram drivers. They describe the benefits of clean vehicles and how their systems work, give practical guidelines on practical driver training, and explain how to operate vehicles in the event of an accident.

Tests using the materials were conducted with over 1 500 drivers in the cities of Salzburg (Austria), Brno (Czech Republic), Leipzig and Eberswalde (Germany), and Parma (Italy). The results of the tests were very positive, and can be applied to both alternative and conventionally-fuelled vehicles to save energy and money.

See below to download the training materials in the available languages. The ACTUATE project has also created a series of eco-driving online courses.
