It Takes 30 minutes To Correctly Inflate The Tires On One Bus?
Do you have the time?
It Just Adds Up.
Those extra minutes checking, maintaining and inflating make a difference.
An 80 hour week + 20 hours overtime — that’s how much time is required to maintain the tires of a fleet of 100 buses.
Underinflated tires are 3x more likely to be involved in an accident, according to NHTSA.
Tires that are properly inflated pay for themselves in reduced wear, improved gas mileage and reduced personnel hours.
In a FTS bus study, we discovered we can save one bus 47 gallons in fuel economy.
