RATP Dev USA reduces vehicle accidents by 19%

Posted on November 30, 2018

RATP Dev USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of RATP Group, which operates and maintains urban intercity transportation systems in 14 countries, launched its “drive2zeroTM” Safety Management System (SMS) last year and adopted Ideagen’s software.

Coruson, Ideagen’s cloud-based system for enterprise safety, quality, reporting, and incident management, is used by RATP Dev USA to directly manage safety, risk, and operational performance across all bus, paratransit, and rail services.

“We started implementing SMS in our subsidiaries back in December 2017 and, to date, we’ve implemented SMS in eight out of around 35, so we still have a lot of work to do,” said Mike Anderson, VP, safety and security, for RATP Dev USA. “But our initial results are very promising — we’ve seen an overall reduction year-to-date of 19% in vehicle accidents alone.”

As part of the same framework, SmartDrive Systems, a video-based safety and transportation intelligence, provides RATP Dev USA’s fleets, drivers, and management with driving performance insight and analysis, helping save fuel, expenses, and lives.

“drive2zero is our internally developed safety solution,” explains Patrick Manley, director, safety, for RATP Dev USA. “We worked and partnered with Ideagen and SmartDrive to help develop some of the electronic components of the drive2zero SMS.

“Where in the past we have seen companies report positive results in nine to 12 months, we’re now seeing results in six to seven months. That’s due to an increase in hazard reports as we now have people telling us where risk is in our organization and a comprehensive way of managing that risk,” he adds.

RATP Dev USA transports more than 78 million passengers across the U.S. through various transportation services such as bus, urban or intercity rail lines(streetcar), and shuttle services.

The drive2zero framework has four components — Safety Policy, Risk Management, Safety Assurance, and Safety Promotion. Its aim is to continuously improve transit operations and support RATP Dev USA’s commitment to an unparalleled safety record for customers and employees.
