Encourage safe driving with bus fleet management

Transporting passengers requires a commitment to safety. By installing Geotab’s advanced bus fleet management GPS tracking solution, you can report on all aspects of fleet safety during the journey. Generate specific reports or holistic driver safety scorecards that monitor harsh braking and acceleration, sharp turning, driver seat belt use and more. Use this data to reward positive traits or respond to unsafe driver behaviour before it impacts your passengers.
