Embracing Safety With Technology

Anthony’s Travel utilises the latest technology to enhance and increase safety, driving standards, performance and fuel efficiency.

We have invested heavily in vehicle technology that enables us to constantly monitor and make adjustments to our drivers’ performance if required.

We have carried out a great deal of investment, promotion and training on various safety-related aspects listed below:

In 2003 we introduced vehicle trackers and were one of the first coach companies to do so. By doing this, we were able to monitor route efficiency. Alerts are sent when vehicles are idling or if they go over the speed limit and all reports are analysed weekly. Since the introduction of tracking facilities, our fuel usage has reduced.

In 2007, we embarked on a programme to fit synectic CCTV systems to our coaches, whilst this is an accepted practice in the bus industry, very few coach operators have taken advantage of this technology.

All vehicles are fitted with multi-camera systems that cover all external angles of the coach, saloon and hazardous areas such as steps and the driver’s cab area. Also, conversations with drivers in the cab area are recorded.

In 2010, we introduced Genius telematic systems to all of our vehicles. Each driver is issued with an individual log to which we are able to monitor driving standards and behaviour, monitoring areas such as braking, cornering and acceleration. Each driver is provided with a score per journey.  This enables us to analysis data to identify any potential areas of concerns and offer training when needed. Staff have also commented that since using similar driving methods in their own cars, they have noticed a reduction in their own personal fuel use.

All our driving staff are entered into ROSCO Safe driving scheme.

In 2012, we were the first accredited member of BUSK Simply safe and Benchmark approval schemes for safe school transport. As a founder member, we recognised the importance of schools, governors and parents realising their own responsibility in booking safe transport and providing the correct information so they can be assured that they have done everything within their powers to satisfy their legal requirements.

We introduced the School of The year Award which goes to a school that recognises the need for safe transport. Following the success of this award, we were approached by BUSK and the scheme has now been rolled out by other coach operators nationwide.  We also have participated in BUSK Conferences as an industry panellist.

In 2013, we introduced AlcolockUK breathalyzers to our fleet of coaches and minicoaches. This means each vehicle will not start unless the driver has completed a breath test.  This gives our clients greater peace of mind that when booking with Anthony’s Travel that safety is a priority.
