The largest operating expense of any bus is likely to be the maintenance. Frequent maintenance is crucial to keeping passengers safe and your business compliant. The largest hidden cost of bus maintenance is downtime. Every hour a bus is off the road, costs a company money. With a large fleet and thousands of kilometres traveled, that typically costs most bus fleet companies several hundred thousand peryear in lost revenue. The easiest way to claw this back is through onsite servicing by skilled technicians. Getting the job done right the first time, helps keep buses on the road and on time.
Your heavy vehicle mechanic can help you setup a routine plan to inspect brakes on all buses at every service. Brakes should typically be replaced every 40,000km. However driving style plays a major factor so having them checked over at each service will ensure your passengers stay safe.
The exterior lights on a bus are one giant safety system. Lights are subject to constant vibration causing wire and bulb failures. Regular safety checks and maintenance are crucial to keeping any bus safe and on the road. To keep your bus lights shining in between services you can apply dielectric grease on connections to protect from moisture. It’s also good practice to do a full check of all lights prior to taking any bus on the road.
All of these could be signs of a faulty suspension or you could possibly need a wheelalignment. Either way you should have your bus checked out by your mechanic to avoid further damage and further time off the road.
One of the most important components to help reduce exhaust fumes and emissions is the DPF (diesel particulate filter). Frequent stop starts by buses is likely to shorten the life of the DPF, or at least clog it up faster. Regular cleaning will extend the DPF’s life significantly which your mechanic can do at each service. Failing that, the DPF will eventually need replacement.
