Reduce your Operational Costs
Operational costs are an unavoidable by-product of running a bus company – and when you have hundreds or even thousands of vehicles and drivers, those costs can be astronomical. However, there’s a significant upside to having astronomical operational costs: it creates huge potential for operational efficiencies.
Given the scale of driver, vehicle and fuel costs involved, can you calculate the impact of just a 3% reduction in driver overtime payments? Now imagine if you could combine that with a project to consolidate all your on-board hardware, improve fuel efficiency through driver training and better allocation of vehicles to routes.
In a highly competitive market, investing in technology is a proven way to remove operational costs from the bottom line. If that’s not already your goal then perhaps it should be – it’s certainly ours.
