Bus & Coach

arrow-curve

Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) such as buses, coaches, and minibuses are crucial for today’s commuters and leisure travellers. Ensuring the safety of passengers, employees, and the public is paramount. However, operating these vehicles in busy and congested urban areas presents challenges, especially in avoiding incidents with cyclists and other vulnerable road users.

Due to their size and the position of the drivers, buses and coaches have significant blind spots. This limited visibility is a major factor in accidents and greatly increases the risk of collisions. Implementing measures to prevent incidents and discourage fraudulent insurance claims and vandalism is vital for the safety of passengers, staff, and other road users, as well as for maintaining the reliability and efficiency of the transport service.

Key Safety Measures:

  • Enhanced Visibility: Advanced systems to minimise blind spots and improve driver awareness.
  • Incident Prevention: Real-time alerts and monitoring to avoid collisions with vulnerable road users.
  • Fraud and Vandalism Deterrence: Surveillance and reporting tools to protect against fraudulent claims and vandalism.
  • Urban Navigation: Solutions designed for the challenges of operating in densely populated areas.

By prioritising these safety measures, we can ensure a safer and more efficient transport service for everyone involved.

Challenges in the Bus & Coach Industry

The bus and coach industry faces a range of incidents and problems, including:

  • Collisions with Cyclists, Pedestrians and Other Road Users: Blind spots can lead to dangerous collisions with other road users.
  • Vehicle Damage During Manoeuvres: Rear overhangs can cause damage when manoeuvring in tight spaces or when reversing in depots, bus stations or coach interchanges.
  • Preventing Fraud and Theft: Without cameras fitted, there is often a lack of an accurate eye witness in the event of fraudulent insurance claims and potential theft issues.

Addressing these issues is essential to improve safety and efficiency within the industry.
