Stagecoach Group

About The Customer
Stagecoach Group is one of the world's largest public transport groups, operating approximately 8,400 buses across the UK. The company provides services from England's south coast to Scotland's most remote islands, transporting around 2.5 million passengers each day. Over the past decade, Stagecoach has been focused on improving the sustainability of its operations, with a particular emphasis on reducing its fleet transport CO2 emissions. The company has been proactive in seeking out innovative solutions to help it achieve its ambitious sustainability goals.
The Challenge
Stagecoach Group, one of the world's largest public transport groups, was facing a significant challenge in improving the sustainability of its operations. The company, which operates approximately 8,400 buses across the UK and carries around 2.5 million passengers daily, had set a goal to significantly reduce its fleet transport CO2 emissions by 3%. However, achieving this ambitious aim was proving to be difficult. Stagecoach needed a solution that would not only help it meet its emission reduction goals but also reduce fuel consumption, decrease vehicle wear and tear, and enhance passenger comfort and safety. To address these challenges, Stagecoach turned to GreenRoad, a provider of driver behavior and fleet performance management solutions.
The Solution
Stagecoach implemented GreenRoad's platform across its 116 depots, supplementing it with a comprehensive program of training, ongoing monitoring, and an incentive scheme. The platform provided practical tools for identifying and eliminating idling and other fuel-wasting behaviors, leading to an immediate reduction in fuel consumption and carbon emissions. The solution also helped extend the life of vehicle components, such as brakes, by reducing wear and tear. In addition, Stagecoach partnered with GreenRoad in 2020 to develop technology for preventing low bridge strikes, a significant issue for England's double-decker buses. The system alerts drivers in time to prevent such incidents, thereby enhancing passenger safety.
Operational Impact
  • The implementation of GreenRoad's platform has led to significant operational improvements for Stagecoach. The company has seen a substantial reduction in driver safety risk and fuel consumption, surpassing its original targets. The system has also been well-received by drivers, with 20% earning GreenRoad's prestigious Fleet Elite status, four times the number originally expected. This has resulted in safer driving practices, happier passengers, and lower operational expenses. Furthermore, the system's ability to alert drivers to potential low bridge strikes has helped prevent accidents, enhancing passenger safety and reducing potential liabilities.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Driver safety risk reduced by 60%
  • Fuel consumption declined by 4%, surpassing the original target
  • 20% of drivers earned GreenRoad’s prestigious Fleet Elite status, four times the number originally expected
