Crew Plus is a sustainable solution package from Hive, which includes Bus Crew Well Being on the forefront. Bus Crew are the driving force of the Bus Industry, and they carry a responsibility of not only driving safely on road but also ferrying the lives of passengers on board the bus with utmost care and responsibility.
Hive have been trying to address issues like Driver Health and Driver Fatigue, which we believe are some prime causes of unfortunate mishaps both on road and off road. We are trying to ensure the driver safety not only by giving adequate informative technical training, but also taking care of drivers, by ensuring proper diet, rest and taking care of their health by carrying out medical tests on regular basis.
In order to get collect real time information, Hive spoke to many Bus Crews across India, through its case studies to know the reality on ground and thereby find solutions of driver and bus crew problems and issues by addressing the core issues, which often go unheard of.
We will be also conducting Safe Driving Refresher Courses in collaboration with our partner fleet operators, to brush up the safety norms from time to time. We believe a regular interaction with the Bus Crew will not only help to minimize the communication gap between the Bus Crew and Operator Management, but it will also facilitate a more trust building platform to carry on the fleet operation in a more streamline way.
Hive wants to a bridge between the Bus Crew and the Operator Management in order to enroll better service operability thereby improving the driver and bus crew life ensuring a safety and holistic approach in their betterment.
Lack of adequate rest and sleep, is what we observed to be most deprived of on the bus crew point of view. We are focussing much more on that prespective too, in cooperation of the bus fleet operator.
