A successful trial with Christchurch-based Red Bus in New Zealand brought about an immediate reduction in both fuel consumption and speeding events.
In collaboration with channel partner Vehicle Technologies, a MiX Telematics fleet management solution has now been fitted in 77 of their buses. The operator is responsible for providing transport services to around 3.8 million passengers and is committed to improving safety and efficiency, while lowering carbon emissions.
Red Bus CEO, Paul McNoe, says the vision for the operation is to lead the way in passenger transport in New Zealand. He also expects that on-going use of the MiX Telematics solution will bring about enhanced passenger comfort, reduced accidents and savings in terms of maintenance costs.
