“The bus/motorcoach transportation industry faces regulatory and operational challenges similar to over-the-road commercial transportation fleets,” said Steve Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “It was a natural extension of our efforts in the commercial transportation market to develop a solution that meets the specific requirements for passenger-carrying drivers as well. Now motorcoach companies have access to  the compliance and safety benefits of mobile fleet management, cost reduction due to automation of tasks, navigation specific to larger vehicles, and monitoring of vehicle and driver behavior for maintenance and training.”
