A bus or coach will never be better than its driver. Fuel economy, service costs and passenger satisfaction are business critical factors on which driving performance has a direct influence
The way a vehicle is driven has a direct link to your business result. Volvo provides several tools for improvement. On-board you can add the I-Coaching service which gives instant feedback to your driver, and it has been proven to give lasting results. For follow-up of driving behaviour, the Driving Profile service included in Volvo Fleet Management provides a full and detailed record. And based on your findings you can choose whether to offer driver training or other ways of motivating your drivers.
Do your passengers enjoy the ride? If they do, it’s largely thanks to the drivers ability to adopt to the traffic situation and to drive proactively. In both city, intercity and touring operations the driver is just as important as the seat comfort and the on-board facilities. An investment in driver training and I-Coaching will increase your share of loyal and satisfied passengers. And with Coaching Zones you can ensure comfort on roads which require more careful driving.
Driving style is a key to fuel efficiency and passenger satisfaction, as well as reduced wear and tear. Volvo offers a range of smart services that will make good drivers even better. Your driver is your ambassador and investments in driver performance will pay back instantly.
