For safe transport operations


Every GSE bus is equipped with a digital Tachograph that tracts current location with GPS, current speed, continuous driving time, sudden braking, and various other information. This information is relayed back to our office when it is processed and observed to improve the safety of operations.
Drivers are required to check-in before each operation. For drivers that are not at the office for the start of their operation (example: at a hotel), check-in takes place via radio and a mobile alcohol checker is used.
Every GSE bus is equipped with a drive recorder camera
Videos are used in training sessions with the drivers to improve driving techniques.
It may also be used in the case of an accident or other incident.


News and updates from the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is closely monitored to prepare for or avoid certain situations.
