The Optimum Ride Safety Promise
At Optimum Ride we hold safety above all, so all of our drivers are extensively trained and certified in CPR and first aid. All of our drivers also attend regular training classes to prepare them for any situation that may arise while on the job. These comprehensive training programs involve both classroom and on the road instruction. All Optimum Ride coaches come equipped as standard with first aid kits and fire extinguishers.
Optimum Ride only hires the best, so our hiring process starts with a strict face-to-face interview followed by detailed background checks and a rigorous set of classroom and practical exams. If you think you have what it takes, apply by clicking here.
It goes without saying that Optimum Ride has a zero tolerance policy on drugs and alcohol for our staff, and continuous random testing helps back up this commitment.
Prior to each charter bus rental our drivers conduct detailed research of the area so they feel confident at every stage of the journey. This dedication means a better, faster, and safer journey for you. Optimum Ride also backs our drivers with a 24/7 dispatch service so they always have the knowledge and support they need instantly.
Provincial and Federal Legislation governs regular inspections of commercial vehicles, but Optimum Ride goes above and beyond with a focus on preventative maintenance to enhance reliability and safety. In addition to government mandated inspections from licensed inspectors, Optimum Ride’s dedicated and experienced maintenance team checks each vehicle after every trip and perfectly follows the manufacturer’s guidelines to keep each vehicle in top condition. This dedication to safety through maintenance is one of the many reasons Optimum Ride is one of the most trusted charter bus service providers in the Maritimes.
Preventative maintenance isn’t limited to the garage. Each Optimum Ride driver performs a full pre and post-trip inspection checklist to identify any changes in performance so the issues can be found and fixed quickly before they get the chance to compromise safety or comfort.
Bus travel is the safest mode of land transportation and, despite carrying millions of people many hundreds of thousands of kilometers a year, busses account for less than 1% of all highway fatalities.
Our drivers also strictly adhere to the allowable driving hours mandated by provincial and federal legislation for the safety and comfort of drivers and passengers alike.
