Paul S Winson Coaches goes green with RouteMaster 28 April 2015

Paul S Winson Coaches reckons it has “dramatically improved” driving standards, cut fuel costs and enhanced passenger comfort since implementing RouteMaster, from AGM Telematics.

The East Midlands operator runs a 30-stron fleet of 29- to 78-seater coaches, on contracts ranging from corporate to European group travel, holiday excursions and school services.

Operations director Anthony Winson says that in 32 years of business, he thought he had learned most of what there is to know about running efficient services.

"However, since we installed the RouteMaster vehicle tracking and monitoring system the operation has seen a number of fresh benefits," he says.

In the traffic office, a large screen provides a real time view of each of his vehicles on the road for scheduling and estimating arrival times. Additionally, it shows a traffic light display covering driver behaviour and actions.

"Each driver has their own log, which records key information, including braking, idling, speed and mpg. When we first started, the bulk of drivers were showing red, but after a short while ... I'm pleased to say 95% are on green," says Winson

And he adds that, with reduced idling, fuel bills have also been cut, while any disputes over vehicle speeds are instantly settled by referring to the system record.
