SOUTH FALLSBURG, N.Y. — School and charter bus company Rolling V Bus Corp. has selected GreenRoad to provide driving behavior improvement service.

Rolling V’s school bus division provides transportation services to six school districts and is a member of the New York School Bus Contractors Association.

GreenRoad’s automated, customizable service helps drivers identify and correct risky driving behavior in real time, combining in-vehicle technology with integrated Web-based applications that continuously rate driving skills and behavior.

A red-yellow-green LED display is installed in the vehicle, alerting the driver when a maneuver performed is outside the safety parameters designated by the bus company. At the same time, fleet managers can track driving behavior through GreenRoad’s reporting and risk analysis tools.

Commercial fleets that implement the GreenRoad Service typically reduce crashes by up to 50 percent and cut fuel usage and emissions by up to 10 percent, according to the company.

“Our drivers are professionals committed to providing the safest transportation possible to the passengers they serve, so they have embraced the objective, non-intrusive feedback they receive from GreenRoad and the opportunity it affords them to become even better drivers,” said Phil Vallone, president of Rolling V.
