Cardiff Bus is the leading bus operator in Cardiff, Wales, and the surrounding area. Fuel economy is hugely important to any fleet, but especially for a company that is unable to pass on the costs of rising fuel to its customers or clients.
In order to carry on delivering value to their passengers, Cardiff Bus evaluated the prospective offerings of five different companies who offered some level of fuel efficiency boost. They eventually decided that the fleet management system offered by MiX Telematics was the most comprehensive.
Once installed, the system enabled Cardiff Bus to boost customer comfort, reduce the risk of vehicle damage that may have been caused by an accident or road conditions, as well as monitor engine temperatures. It has been described as a savvy investment in green technology that has enabled Cardiff Bus to be proactive and keep public transport prices at a level its customers can afford.
Unable to pass rising fuel costs onto its passengers, Cardiff Bus needed to find a way of reducing fuel costs without cutting routes. The best option was to install a comprehensive MiX Telematics system that relies on accurate, real-time data to monitor and influence fuel consumption. The system is further capable of boosting ride comfort, reducing the risk of vehicle damage or accidents and monitors engine temperature.
