MiX Telematics has announced that bus and coach operator Bus Éireann will be expanding on its current contract with MiX Telematics following the initial deployment of MiX’s telematics technology.
The announcement builds on the initial rollout of 318 Bus Éireann vehicles fitted with MiX’s telematics solutions.
Some key points that substantiated the subsequent expansion include fuel savings, improved safety and meeting compliance standards for Ireland and the National Transport Authority, according to MiX.
“Bus Eireann are committed to introducing a fleetwide telematics system to support the organization’s goals and objectives,” said Allen Parker, chief customer officer, Bus Éireann. “We are focussed on providing our staff with the information and support needed to optimise performance and enhance both safety and the journey experience for our customers. We look forward to working with MiX Telematics to delivering on our goals,”
The next phase of the deployment will see an additional 418 vehicles that will be fitted with MiX fleet manager, RIBAS and MyMiX, all of which will work in synergy to meet the standards of Bus Éireann. The existing fleet of 318 vehicles will be upgraded as well.
“We’re proud that a customer of Bus Éireann’s reputation believes in our products and service delivery in order to meet their own commitment to passenger safety and unrivaled customer service,” said Charles Tasker, chief operating officer for MiX Telematics. “We are fully behind ensuring that the ongoing partnership continues to be supported by our product offering in this deployment.”
