- CONNECTIVITY PROTOCOLS
FirstGroup implemented GreenRoad across its fleet of 9,000 buses in the UK and Ireland to deliver real-time driver feedback and targeted optimization insights. GreenRoad continuously measures maneuvers that most impact safe driving, fuel efficiency and emissions, and gives drivers instant feedback in order to correct themselves in real time. On returning from routes, drivers and depot managers can view online the overall quality of their driving. A score is allocated to each driving session, giving drivers the opportunity to improve their driving and help play their part in tackling environmental issues. Fleet tracking information is also monitored and analyzed to optimize fleet operations.

- OPERATIONAL IMPACT
Impact #1 [Cost Reduction - Energy]
As a result of FirstGroup's drivers driving with greater attention, they are using less fuel and lowering emissions, to the point where FirstGroup believes it is possible to hit its three-year target of reducing emissions.
Impact #2 [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
By enabling better decisions, GreenRoad not only improved fuel consumption, operational efficiency, and vehicle wear-and-tear but also helped to improve passenger satisfaction and lower insurance costs.
- QUANTITATIVE BENEFIT
The nationwide roll out to the entire fleet of 9,000 buses reported an almost 70% drop in risky maneuvers - from an average of 80 risky maneuvers per 10 hours to an average of 26.
Collisions were reduced by more than six percent.
Passenger injuries have been reduced by over eight percent.
