As part of the CAG Travellers Coach training program, drivers are trained to handle any type of situation when doing their jobs. Each individual is taught to stick to basic rules, and by doing this are able to avoid major disruptions to trips. Our drivers are trained to also perform regular maintenance, safety belt checks, avoiding ‘no-bus zones’ and maintaining caution in high traffic areas.
In an effort to instill driver accountability and discipline all our buses are fitted with the Econet Connected Car satellite tracking system that monitors drivers behavior while driving to ensure passenger safety.
