Road safety

We follow the vision zero “Nollvisionen” which is statutory by the Swedish government. The ambition is to decrease the number of people getting killed or hurt in traffic to zero. One of our values is “We have many lives in our hands”, which means that we are responsible throughout the whole journey. The bus is already today one of the most secure ways to transport and we wish to increase this security for all our passengers and colleagues through:

- Following the current laws and guidelines from authorities and employers

- Continuously communicating and assuring this policy’s accuracy and that it is followed within the organization

- Setting goals for our important aspects of traffic safety

- Working with continuous improvements

Road safety is the most important aspect of quality for Vy Travel AB. We are working actively with identifying risks and minimizing those who are identified. Vy Travel holds a management system certificate (ISO 39001:2012) which yearly is controlled through external revision via an accredited certification organ.

- All buses are mounted with safety belts on all seats. We always recommend using these since it is a legal obligation in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. Using safety belts also assure safety, for the individual and all fellow passengers.

- The buses go through each of Setra’s and Scania’s service program.

- Our drivers complete regular heath examinations and educations in cardiopulmonary rescue and fire safety. 

- The buses are mounted with alcohol interlocks.

- During the winter period our buses have winter decks. We only use decks with groove depth deeper than what the law demands.
