Samara announced that Coach USA has selected the Samsara Connected Operations Cloud, Samsara’s telematic solution and AI dash cams, to use across its fleet of 1,500 vehicles. This is in an attempt to increase safety, efficiency, and sustainability of its operations.  

“The safety of our customers and drivers is our top priority at Coach USA,” said Linda Burtwistle, CEO of Coach USA. 

“Working with Samsara will allow us to continue to elevate our safety standards by proactively monitoring speed, following distance, and distracted driving. The new system will also be a tremendous aide in our commitment to sustainability and eco-friendly travel.” 

Coach USA will use Samsara’s solution to reduce risky driving behaviours and the number of incidences on the road. Coach USA is said to be able to identify opportunities for driver coaching in real time, without having to shift through data.  

Coach USA is striving towards making bus travel a leading alternative and sustainable form of transportation. The company will use Samara data to increase fuel economy through the reduction of idling, harsh breaking, and rapid acceleration. Samsara’s insights on Coach USA’s fleet will be helping to reduce the fleets carbon footprint.  

“Passenger transit companies like Coach USA play an important role in connecting our communities. As consumers seek easy and more sustainable modes of transportation, Coach USA’s investment in technology innovation will continue setting them apart,” said Robert Stobaugh, Chief Customer Officer of Samsara.  

“We’re excited to collaborate with Coach USA to provide insights that take their operations to the next level.” 

The Samsara platform will be used to improve the customer experience for its many passengers and will increase efficiency in relation to departure and arrival times and bus location. 

This agreement marks Coach USA joining the ever-growing number of transit companies that have chosen Samsara to improve their operations and enhance customer experience.
