DRPA Promotes Eco-Driving Program

The Delaware River Port Authority is joining the I-95 Corridor Coalition’s “DRIVE GREEN, SAVE GREEN” campaign designed to educate drivers about easy changes they can make to reduce fuel consumption and wear and tear on their vehicles while saving money and reducing environmental impacts.

A link to the campaign can be found the DRPA website www.drpa.org.

DRPA CEO, John J. Matheussen, says "drivers taking a 700-mile round trip can save as much as $80 by doing a few simple things."

According to the coalition, before hitting the road get items out of your trunk, fully inflate your tires, change your oil and tighten your fuel cap. While on the road, the coalition says observe posted speed limits, avoid aggressive driving and use your cruise control.

The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation agency. DRPA owns and operates the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross Bridges, and PATCO. The DRPA also owns the RiverLink Ferry.
