SmartDrive to equip Ride Right with safety program

Posted on January 26, 2011

SmartDrive Systems recently announced that the company's SmartDrive Safety program has been selected by Ride Right for that company's paratransit transportation fleet.

The SmartDrive Safety program uses in-vehicle recorders to capture detailed video and vehicle data during sudden stops, swerves, collisions and other events. Captured data is downloaded wirelessly and sent to professional safety reviewers who categorize and score the events according to 50-plus safety observations. Fleet managers then use these results to improve fleet performance and overall driving safety.

Ride Right provides paratransit and fixed-route services under contract with state and local government agencies and health systems in Ohio, Florida and Indiana.

"At Ride Right every trip is important. Our goal is complete client safety and satisfaction. To that end, we must provide our drivers with the tools to help them maintain top performance and maximum safety. By using video event recording and coaching, we can reduce collisions and incidents, keep our vehicles on the road, and deliver our special needs passengers safely to their destination," according to Ride Right Vice President of Safety, Training and Security Frank Ciccarella.
