Honolulu coach operation rewards safe driver

Posted on June 21, 2013

Honolulu’s Royal Star Hawaii Motorcoach Tours & Destination Services awarded veteran driver Marvie Domingo a $5,000 check for going five years without an accident.

“Safety is our highest priority,” said Marc Rubenstein, Royal Star’s VP/GM. “So, we are proud of accomplishments like this and hope to reward more drivers this year.”

The majority of Domingo’s driving is maneuvering a 58-passenger motorcoach through the congested, narrow streets of urban Honolulu and Waikiki, streets filled with cars, trolleys and buses, as well as pedestrians.

Domingo, who has been with Royal Star Hawaii for five years and has never once had an accident with the company, attributes his success to being relaxed and maintaining concentration.

Royal Star Hawaii has had a highly successful safety award system for accident-free drivers since its inception in 1996. Each consecutive year a driver goes accident-free, they are awarded an additional $1,000 per year up to a maximum of $5,000. That means that over the course of five years, Domingo was awarded a total of $15,000.
