Rest Easy. We’ve Got This.
Safety is a non-negotiable at Brookshire Charter Tours. We understand there’s a lot riding on us – most importantly the safety of your family, friends, students, team, or colleagues as they travel, and you can rest easy that we provide the highest level of protection possible.
Following are just a few of the many ways we ensure you and your group is safe, providing administrators, teachers, leaders, and parents peace of mind:
Electronic Driver Logs
Driver fatigue is the #1 cause of accidents in the industry. Electronic logs force a charter motorcoach company to uphold a much higher standard when it comes to abiding by the Federal HOS (Hours of Service) laws. Even in this digital age, companies are still allowed to operate using paper logs. We at Brookshire Charter Tours feel this increases the risk for passengers. Paper logs allow for a much lower level of accountability, exposing passengers to a greater danger from driver fatigue. Our drivers are safe drivers because we as a company hold ourselves to a much higher (electronic) safety standard.
We all know seatbelts save lives. Brookshire Charter Tours is proud of the fact that our fleet is 100% seatbelt equipped. Although the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does not yet require seatbelts on commercial coaches, we take the initiative to install them on all of our equipment for the safety of our passengers.
Full-Time Safety Director
At Brookshire Charter Tours, we employ a full-time Safety Director whose responsibility is to make our company the safest in the industry. We take this position seriously, and it is never filled as an afterthought by someone whose primary focus isn’t first and foremost – safety. Our Safety Director lives, eats, and breathes safety and it shows in everything we do.
GPS Insight Monitoring System
Brookshire Charter Tours uses this advanced technology to create a proactive safety environment. We constantly monitor the bus in real time so that the full strength of our company and our people can be present every single mile of every single trip. This all-in approach allows us to work with the drivers to modify and/or correct any situations that may lead to an unsafe, or unenjoyable environment. Our drivers are highly trained professionals who demand excellence in all they do. This system helps reinforce the fact that no Brookshire Charter Tours driver is alone in his duties. There is comfort in knowing that Brookshire Charter Tours promotes a team attitude that focuses on the strength of the group and not just the individual.
Driver Safety Measures
Brookshire Charter Tours motorcoach drivers are held to the highest safety standards. We have regular mandatory safety meetings covering issues such as safe driving practices, hours of service, reviewed and updated DOT rules and regulations, and passenger care and safety. A thorough screening process and background check is also utilized, including pre-employment drug testing and random testing performed throughout their employment.
