Could Greyhound Turn To Tracking System Technology?

Accident Raises Safety Questions

Greyhound_busTransportation safety is one the biggest concerns for companies like Greyhound who make a profit from shuttling people all across the country every single day. Although bus accidents are not an overly frequent occurrence, they do occur. This is why many schools and companies have been taking measures to increase safety by investing in passenger and driver safety through the use of GPS tracking system technology.

Unfortunately, bus accidents happen and they can often times have fatal consequences. This statement is constantly reinforced with the numerous stories that make headlines about bus crashes, like the recent story about the fatal accident that occurred in the Sacramento area. The crash, which was a multi-fatality car accident, involved a Greyhound bus driver and other motorists. Although the bus operator's driving record was considered clean, many have questioned whether or not if driving activity were being watched in real-time via GPS technology if the accident could have been prevented.

GPS tracking devices are widely recognized as one of the best methods of increasing driving safety in both the consumer and business worlds. When company supervisors have a tool to audit and observe driving activity on a daily basis they can intervene if they see dangerous driving behaviors before they result in catastrophe.

Driving safety is important for not only the passengers who place their lives in the hands of bus operators, but also the drivers themselves. The old saying is that people most likely to be involved in accidents are new drivers, and drivers who have so much experience they tend to become lazy and error-prone. The experienced driver situation is likely the more common situation that faces most bus drivers, therefore, having someone continuously monitor driving activity could only help ensure long-term safe driving behaviors.

Tracking System Opinion

Should Greyhound put GPS trackers on their entire fleet of buses?

Would you feel safer as a passenger if you knew that the bus you were traveling in was equipped with a tracking device?

WTF Greyhound?!?!?! ?!?!?! My daughter, her boyfriend, and my granddaughter just got on a bus in Baltimore, MD and are heading to Wisconsin Dells WI. I can't even find out how far along they are? I guess it doesn't surprise me considering all the trouble I went through with Greyhound. For example, talking to one of the supervisors, me: Are you f***ing kidding me? you expect to put my daughter on a bus in one of the highest crime cities in america and give them cash for the "ride"? Would you put your daughter in a position like that? Supervisor: Sure why not? Me: you have moral issues. you are so [censored]ed up in the head it's not even funny. I called to complain about this supervisor and they told me, "sorry, there's nothing we can do". GREYHOUND, YOU CAN GO F*** YOURSELF!!!!!!! !!! TO THE OWNER OF GREYHOUND, I REALLY HOPE SOMEONE DRIVES ONE OF YOUR BUSES RIGHT UP YOUR F***ING ASS!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Because greyhound doesn't want to be held accountable, they have it made until someone forces them to invest in GPS. They like not having a clue where their buses are so they can be excused from all responsibility. No GPS means no pressure. Meal vouchers are their favorite way to make up for the time we pay them to waste. I typed this as I wait for my first bus to show up, on a long trip from Lubbock to Boston. They don't have the faintest idea where their employee or passengers are right now.... Safe travels everyone!

Quoting L. Howard:
GPS should be required on all public service vehicles, especially for Greyhound. I agree with previous comments...why don't they have this installed & what is taking so long? I'm confused...

because greyhound is too poor they just don't think that the "most important thing" [un quote] doesn't matter half as much as a office or cash D:

Even more ridiculous is that they are even still in business. They are ALWAYS late. Sometimes by half a day.
