RoadRelay 5 for Buses

Do you own or manage a fleet of electronically-controlled diesel-powered buses? RoadRelay 5 can help you more effectively manage your fleet and monitor the performance of your drivers. Just as RoadRelay has helped trucking fleets increase productivity and save money, it can do the same for your bus fleet.

Expanded Trip Information
RoadRelay 5 displays and records the information you need, like fuel, miles, and engine hours spent in idle and other operating modes. Plus, it allows you to analyze specific, user-definable routes (i.e., from your dispatch center to the final destination) with the Route Recorder feature.

Improved Safety Measures
RoadRelay 5 protects you by recording the number of panic stops, as well as seventy-five seconds of detailed vehicle data - RPM, MPH, and brake and clutch activity for the last three panic stop events. With the Real-Time Clock, you'll know exactly when the events occurred.

Better Vehicle Protection
RoadRelay 5 monitors your power train and all the connected subsystems. If an unexpected event happens, RoadRelay 5 will inform the driver and tell him how to minimize potential damage. It also tracks customizable service intervals for oil changes, filter changes, and tire rotations, notifying the driver when it's time for a shop visit.

High Visibility
RoadRelay 5 has a back-lit graphical Liquid Crustal Display that's easy to read and automatically dims itself when the vehicle headlights are turned on for night driving. There's a backlighting brightness control you can adjust, and the six intuitive keys are back-lit for easy viewing, day or night.

Protection from Theft
No password, no engine start. It's that simple when you activate the anti-theft feature on RoadRelay 5, so you will always find your bus right where you left it.

Lowering Labor Costs
You don't need a technician or a complicated service tool to get information out of RoadRelay 5.PowerSpec software makes data easy to access and read. Anyone can download the information they need.

You can download data quickly and easily at your fuel island or service bay. Combine RoadRelay 5 with PowerSpec's Exception Reporting and you can isolate problems fast - without a mountain of paper to go through. You can even have your favorite reports generated automatically when you need them. That way, you'll know which drivers are having trouble reaching MPG goals or who is responsible for the most sudden decelerations - in a matter of minutes.

RoadRelay 5 Fits All
You can use RoadRelay 5 for your entire bus fleet, regardless of the make or age of your electronic engines. So even with a mixed fleet, you can still compare performance and improve productivity using RoadRelay 5 and the PowerSpec software.
