All New Driver App at Euro Bus Expo 2022

UK Flag

Our all new Driver App was on show for the first time at Euro Bus Expo 2022 which took place at the UK's NEC on 1st - 3rd November 2022.

The new app, which replaces our original Driver App released in 2020 and Walk-Around Check App released in 2016, is scheduled to be released in early 2023. The app has been redesigned from start to finish with a new modern look and a greatly enhanced user experience.  Available free of charge to every operator using Coach Manager, TBS or VMS, functionality includes the ability for drivers to perform their daily walk-around checks and report any defects.  For users of Coach Manager it also allows drivers to view a list of the bookings they have been allocated to, view the full details of each and be guided through each in driving mode.
