TomTom Business Solutions, a leading provider of advanced GPS and fleet management solutions, today announced an incentive program in conjunction with the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to help New York commercial and government fleet operators improve fleet productivity and fuel efficiency.
In partnership with the New York State Department of Transportation, NYSERDA is providing $250,000 in funding toward this program. This funding allows participating New York State businesses to receive special subsidies (up to $350 per vehicle) to save nearly 50 percent off the regular price of TomTom WORKsmart™, a state-of-the-art GPS navigation and fleet solution that improves fleet productivity and reduces fuel consumption. The program is open to any New York State entity that operates a fleet of delivery or service vehicles. Participating partners include the New York City Department of Transportation, and Delcan, a multidisciplinary engineering, planning, management and technology firm that provides a broad range of integrated systems and infrastructure solutions. Delcan's role in the project is to help analyze and report adoption rates, driver behavioral changes, and measure impact to industry and environment.
“NYSERDA is delighted to partner with TomTom Business Solutions to offer a program that will help increase energy efficiency in the transportation sector” said Francis J. Murray Jr., president and CEO of NYSERDA. “Governor Cuomo has identified transportation as an area where New York State can help achieve significant energy savings, and this is an example of an innovative opportunity to advance that agenda”
