By European law, seat belts must be worn when the bus is driving. We comply to the new "Department of Transport" seat belt regulations relating to coach and minibus services in Munich and Germany.
All vehicles carry sealed First Aid Kits to be prepared for any circumstances. Our drivers check that the kits are in place and sealed daily. The First Aid Kit gets also checked at our regular preventative maintenance inspections.
All our vehicles carry a fire extinguishers that are sealed so that we know that they haven't been used (or tampered with). As part of his daily check, our driver ensure that the extinguisher is in the correct position and sealed. The fire extinguisher is also checked at our regular preventative maintenance inspection. The driver will also make passengers aware of fire exits before departure.
We carry out all vehicle maintenance in-house by our own team of bus engineers. Vehicle maintenance records are maintained by our manager. As a precondition of our operators licence vehicles have to undertake preventative maintenance inspections regulary and these inspections are also carried out by our engineers.
We operate a defect reporting system. The drivers make daily reports for each vehicle that is to be used and any defects identified and rectified as soon as possible.
Each bus carries a safety pack which includes a Hi Visibility Safety Vest and Hazard Warning Triangle. This safety pack is a legal requirement in some parts of Europe.
