Stagecoach expands use of GreenRoad

23 April 2014

Driving for Better Business partner GreenRoad has announced that Stagecoach has expanded its use of its fleet management solutions to its entire fleet as it goes live in nearly 1,200 buses in London. With this deployment, Stagecoach will reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions, improve passenger comfort and cut the risk of accidents across routes around the capital.

3,500 Stagecoach drivers in the London area are now using GreenRoad as part of its EcoDriver scheme. This is in addition to the existing Stagecoach drivers at 116 depots nationwide. In total, drivers of 8,830 vehicles are now using GreenRoad. 

Mark Threapleton, Managing Director of Stagecoach London UK Bus, said, “We already invest millions of pounds a year in driver training and new vehicles to offer our Transport for London and our passengers greener, smarter travel and ensure our drivers provide passengers with safe and comfortable journeys. Installing this new system on all 1200 of our buses will help limit the impact of our operations on the environment whilst helping our drivers to drive more safely.”
