Riverside Travel are a minibus & taxi operator based in Blandford Forum, Dorset.
Currently they have a fleet of 24 minibuses & taxi’s that they operate around the local area and beyond. To keep on top of their compliance they decided a daily checks app would be the way forward.
With three main types of vehicle, including standard Ford Tourneo & Transit minibuses, along with wheelchair accessible minibuses (including Mercedes Sprinter, Peugeot Boxer & Nissan NV 400’s) and other taxi vehicles, they needed a system that could allow them to have checklists to suit the specific needs of each vehicle.
Asset Go was identified as the ideal solution with customised checklists for each asset type set up quickly and easily. For some vehicles they added additional checks outside the standard DVSA template including Hackney Licence, School Signs & Wheelchair Equipment.
Ryan Emby from Riverside Travel said “The benefit of using Asset Go over paper is less paperwork to file and also helps with drivers that work away from our base as they don’t have to travel back to base to hand in paperwork.”
Ryan also pointed out that because Asset Go is easy to customise, they have options to use it for other aspects of their day to day operating procedures, saying “I’m thinking we could potentially use the system to keep a record of the passengers we pick up. We do the same routes with the same passengers daily so we could mark whether the student has attended school that day/used our transport.”
He also has plans to implement the workshop maintenance side of the system in the future.
Asset Go is a great option for operators within the passenger transport industry, especially considering the large number of differing vehicles and accommodating the various needs of passengers safely & effectively.
