Reading Buses picks up performance and efficiency with telematics16 April 2015

Reading Buses is rolling out the MiX Telematics fleet management solution across its 172-strong fleet, citing passenger safety and comfort as key criteria, as well as better fleet performance.

The operator carried out a full market evaluation, before selecting the Fleet Manager system.

"In addition to looking to reduce our fuel consumption and carbon footprint, we were also keen to adopt a system which would help ensure incidents such as harsh braking and over-speeding are minimised, to benefit the comfort and safety of our passengers," says Jacqui Gavaghan, performance director for Reading Buses.

MiX is providing the operator with training and assistance with data analysis, as well as helping to explain the system to drivers.

All drivers will be given access to the My Mix driver portal, enabling them to view their scores and compare them against colleagues driving the same vehicles.

Reading Buses has specified the optional dashboard-mounted RIBAS display, which gives drivers instant feedback on driving performance with a traffic light-style display.
