UK: Go-Ahead to Digitalise Bus Maintenance Operations

Go-Ahead is leveraging the Tranzaura app to digitally transform maintenance operations for its bus fleets.

Under a five-year partnership, the Tranzaura app will be rolled out across Go-Ahead’s bus facilities. This will help streamline pre-service daily vehicle inspection checks and maintenance processes.

By October 2024, the operator will transition from traditional paper-based records to digital systems to enhance reliability, safety and sustainability across its fleet of more than 6,000 buses.

Matt Carney, Chief Executive of Go-Ahead Bus, said:

“Our partnership with Tranzaura reflects our dedication to digitalisation, embracing innovative solutions to streamline processes and improve the way we work. By incorporating Tranzaura's digital solutions into our operations, we will achieve new levels of fleet reliability and efficiency, creating safer and more reliable services for customers.”

The Tranzaura app provides real-time compliance visibility and audit trails for operational and management teams.

The technology uses photo capture, dynamic reporting and real-time communication tools between drivers and engineers to enhance reliability and facilitate smooth operations.

Shane Mann, CEO of Tranzaura said:

“The Go-Ahead Group and Tranzaura partnership is built on trust and an excellent working relationship, helping to drive higher standards for defect reporting across the bus industry. Tranzaura is proud to be able to support Go-Ahead in not just driving operational efficiency but also delivering more value to customers. We look forward to a continued successful partnership with Go-Ahead over the next five years.”

This long-term partnership follows the successful use of the Tranzaura technology at Go-Ahead’s London bus garages and depots. The operator will now deploy the app across all its UK operations.
