Bus Safety


Measuring bus safety provides the HSR customer and the transit provider with information on the well-being of HSR customers and can help to identify areas of improvement.

Story behind the numbers

Bus safety reports on the number of kilometers all HSR buses travel per quarter, divided by the number of collisions (non-preventable and preventable).

Performance improvements

The HSR is continuously reviewing the Bus Driver Training Program to ensure HSR drivers are trained using best practices. Twice per year, HSR bus drivers are evaluated on their driving skills. In addition, all bus drivers must participate in an in-depth refresher training program every three years.
