Every journey is motivated by our mission to empower passengers with the freedom to move by providing safe and efficient operations focused on a positive passenger experience.

Robust public transit is the foundation of successful cities and serves as a critical connection to jobs in urban, suburban and residential areas. Our unwavering goal is to deploy a proven suite of operational practices, technologies, and systems to provide a safe, reliable and pleasant trip for over 360 million passenger trips annually.

Delivering on Passenger Care

It’s impossible to understand passengers without being a passenger. At Transdev, we are public transit advocates who understand the importance of customer interaction and engagement. That’s why we’ve implemented a suite of programs that audit, monitor and measure the passenger experience throughout their journey. The opinions and sentiment of your passengers help guide us as we serve your transit and community goals.

An Unrelenting Commitment to Safety First in Bus Operations

The health and safety of our employees, passengers and the communities we serve is our highest priority. It is our moral and ethical obligation and is at the core of many of our business practices.

We show our commitment through our many expansive programs used to drive home this imperative. We engage all employees to constantly pay attention to safety—even the smallest details—in everything they do. Our goal is to continue building a culture where employees consider safe operations their personal responsibility and investment. To achieve this we continuously train, reinforce, motivate, measure, monitor and strive to improve.

Excellence in operator training

Each new Transdev bus operator receives 120 hours of training, 8o behind the wheel and 40 in the classroom. Beyond that, we customize each training profile based on the specific needs and proficiencies of each operator.

Expanding our safety culture

Our custom-designed 300:29:1 program is a cornerstone in ensuring a strong safety culture at our locations. Based on the work of behavioral scientists, the program seeks to engage employees in eliminating the 300 minor unsafe practices or situations that eventually lead to 29 minor incidents, and one major accident.

Harnessing data to enhance safety

Our digital platform feeds real-time data into a dashboard that managers can review at a glance to see if operators need retraining, how operators are performing on key metrics, and even what intersections are culprits for accidents.

The Evolution of the Garage

Advances in maintenance technology are turning traditional mechanics into skilled technicians.

Transit vehicles are now extensively computerized. Wrenches have been replaced by sophisticated diagnostic software and computers and tablets. At Transdev, paperless garages are ubiquitous. Our maintenance software assigns work, tracks parts and monitors productivity.

Customized fleet-management software

Our proprietary platform for maintenance automates our preventative maintenance scheduling. This system enables us to maximize the efficiency of the maintenance operation and maintain a high standard of quality in fleet repairs. Regular internal and regional audits reveal areas to improve: efficiencies in maintenance increase with every tire changed or part replaced at the right time.

KPI dashboards

We rigorously track key metrics, including miles between road calls, cost per mile per part and labor cost per mile. When a bus is not in service it is revenue wasted. That spirit has led to new approaches in digital maintenance that keep our fleet of nearly 9,000 vehicles on the go—reliably serving passengers in every community.

Moving from preventative to proactive

Cloud-based alerts help our technicians work on problems even before the bus returns to the garage, signaling a shift to handling maintenance issues as they arise, as well as at pre-determined mileage levels.
