Streamline fleet emissions compliance with Verizon Connect

By Verizon Connect June 26, 2024

Vehicle emissions are a significant contributor to air pollution, and with stricter emissions regulations coming into effect, keeping your fleet clean and compliant is crucial. Verizon Connect is committed to helping you navigate these changes as you work to achieve your fleet sustainability goals. We offer a suite of telematics solutions that empower you to reduce your environmental footprint, simplify compliance with regulations and keep your vehicles on the road.

The challenge of maintaining compliant fleet emissions

Maintaining compliant emissions is an ongoing challenge for fleet owners. Manually monitoring for potential issues can be time-consuming and inefficient, and unexpected breakdowns can disrupt operations and lead to missed deadlines. Additionally, traditional emissions testing often requires taking vehicles out of service, further impacting productivity.

Introducing the Reveal Emissions System Report

Verizon Connect’s new Reveal Emissions System Report is designed to address these challenges head-on. This report, available to existing and new Reveal customers with light-duty and medium-duty vehicles, empowers fleet owners to proactively identify potential emissions-related issues before they become major problems. Even beyond mandated programs, proactive maintenance is crucial for managing emissions compliance and reducing environmental impact.

Key features and benefits of the report include:

  • Monitor system details: Get a comprehensive list of vehicle systems experiencing issues, along with the associated Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs).
  • Check engine light details: See exactly how far the vehicle has traveled with the check engine light on and the total time it has been illuminated.
  • Targeted maintenance: Gain valuable insights to plan targeted maintenance and mitigate downtime.

The Reveal Emissions System Report allows you to:

  • Proactively address emissions issues: Identify potential problems before they impact your emissions performance and compliance.
  • Reduce downtime: Combat unscheduled maintenance and keep your fleet on the road.
  • Improve efficiency: Streamline maintenance processes by focusing on specific systems requiring attention.

Streamlined emissions testing for California government fleets via the BAR Continuous Testing Program

While the Reveal Emissions System Report is a valuable tool for proactive maintenance, it’s important to note that it does not replace mandatory emissions testing. For government fleets in California, we're excited to announce our participation in the California Bureau of Automotive Repair’s (BAR) Continuous Testing Program (CTP). This program, currently in its final approval stages, enables government agency vehicles to remotely transmit telematics data directly to  BAR, eliminating the need for physical smog checks.

The benefits of CTP for government fleets include:

  • Reduced downtime: Skip the hassle and cost of traditional emissions testing appointments.
  • Improved efficiency: Streamline compliance efforts with automated data transmission.
  • Peace of mind: Confirm your fleet remains compliant with California’s emissions regulations.

While currently limited to government vehicles operating in California, the program paves the way for similar initiatives across the state and nation, and Verizon Connect is ready to help fleets prepare for future opportunities to submit telematics data in lieu of in-person emissions checks.

Staying ahead of the regulatory curve

By utilizing telematics, fleets gain a crucial tool to help avoid costly fines for non-compliance and a way to streamline compliance tasks to reduce  downtime. Verizon Connect is committed to providing innovative solutions that help you achieve your sustainability goals and navigate the evolving regulatory landscape. The Reveal Emissions System Report and participation in the BAR Continuous Testing Program are just two examples of our dedication to empowering you to operate a clean and compliant fleet. 

Whether you’re a government fleet manager preparing for the CTP or a commercial fleet owner looking to prioritize your emissions performance, Verizon Connect has the telematics tools and expertise to help you achieve your sustainability goals.
