Embracing modern technology
Our vehicles are fitted with technological features such as GPS tracking and forward and rear-facing dash cams that allow us to monitor each journey in close detail. Not only does this help us to anticipate and avoid potential issues, it ensures that we know exactly where all our coaches are at all times.
Finding a way
If you’re interested in setting up a private route with a group of other parents, contact us to discuss the journey that you have in mind. Once we’re clear on your requirements, we’ll work with you to see how we can help. Our fleet can handle a wide range of jobs and we’re always looking to put our vehicles to good use.
Using our experience
The experience that we’ve built up since 1998 informs every job that we take on. We know how to identify potential issues in advance and we’ll make sure that each journey receives the support that it requires. We’ll make sure that your children get to school safely, comfortably, and without any hassle.
Preparing for success
Before your children travel with us, we’ll spend time preparing the route, identifying potential issues, and double checking all the timings to make sure that everything runs smoothly. This preparation makes all the difference and ensures that each journey is safe, efficient, and reliable.
Focusing on safety
We refuse to compromise on safety. All our coaches receive a rigorous maintenance inspection every six weeks and are fitted out with the latest safety features, ensuring that they’re kept in top working order. We also require all our drivers to pass enhanced DBS checks and to stick strictly to permitted driver’s hours.
Minimising our impact
We’ve embraced the environmental benefits of coach travel, investing in a fleet of modern, fuel-efficient vehicles and taking steps to reduce our fuel consumption and emissions where we can. We minimise the impact of our journeys so you don’t have to feel guilty when travelling with us.
