Telematics Pilot Project

Contact information

DES Fleet Operations is in the planning stages to commence a six month pilot project implementing telematics on 350 vehicles on assignment with the top ten agencies with respect to volume of vehicles.

Through the telematics pilot we are evaluating the following potential benefits:

  • Increased traffic safety for state drivers and Washington citizens.
  • Reduction in accident management expenses.
  • Reduction in fuel consumption for DES Fleet vehicles.
  • Reduction in green house gas emissions​.
  • Reduction in total miles driven leading to less annual vehicle purchases.
  • Increased vehicle uptime.
  • Any other opportunities as they become apparent.
