Winter Preparedness (How We Prepare)

winter preparedness

At Diversified Transportation, we put our passengers’ safety first in all seasons. Whether it is avoiding blown tires in summer or slide-offs in the winter, we are vigilant in keeping our drivers and coaches ready to return passengers home safely.

As winter weather sets in, our vehicles and drivers are prepared for sleet, ice, and snow. We are taking extra precautions to ensure safety and comfort, including:

Enhanced driver training. The first step in increasing winter transportation safety is extended driver safety training. Our drivers go through specialized courses to learn how to handle driving in bad weather, giving them the skills and knowledge they need to avoid collisions. We learn from any past mistakes, identifying the top causes of winter accidents, so our drivers can be aware and alert for any and all possible hazards.

Vehicle inspections. We have also thoroughly inspected each and every coach, taking into account every detail from tire tread to battery life, and windshield wipers to coolant systems. Every hose and belt are checked in detail so our coaches can keep running no matter the weather. We are not satisfied meeting government regulations alone; we exceed safety standards to provide the highest quality transportation for your employees.

Passenger comfort. Our attention to detail doesn’t stop at safety. We help our passengers feel comfortable on cold mornings by starting our coaches early. When your workers arrive, they can count on a warm ride to work. They can relax and enjoy their commute without having to worry about heavy traffic, frosted windshields, or broken car heaters.

When snowflakes begin to fall, our staff and vehicles are prepared to help you get to where you need to go and back home again. Explore our schedules for services near you or contact us to find out more about how we can help you get to your destination safely, no matter how harsh this winter gets.
