PASSENGERS SAFETY


Avant Grup Passengers Safety

 

For Avant Grup, the number one leader coaches company in Barcelona, passengers’ safety is our priority. That is the reason behind spending so much time and effort in its improvement.  Or coaches are fitted with the most advanced safety systems. The vehicles go through very thorough technical inspections in order to grant top of the line safety and reliability. We have implanted a continuous training calendar for all the company’s staff that ensures the perfect acknowledgement of the safety innovations and regulations fitted into our vehicles.

Our concerns about safety go beyond our drivers training and thorough coach inspections. The safety protocols are communicated to our passengers at the beginning of every trip. This ensures a proper comprehension of the active and passive safety equipment in our buses.
