On board safety systems

Ensuring both our customers and employees are safe is always our top priority. Here are some of the ways we keep everyone safe on board our coaches...


National Express operates a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol policy. We use a system called Alco-Lock, which doesn’t allow the engine to start until the driver has passed an alcohol breathalyser test.


Each coach has cameras that monitor driver performance. Footage captured by these cameras is then used to coach and maintain driver standards to provide the safest possible journey and a better experience for everyone on the road.


For added peace of mind, our coaches have been fitted with video and audio CCTV.

  Speed monitoring

A system provides data to help us monitor our drivers’ speed and punctuality, to ensure our customers have a comfortable and well-informed journey.

  Lane Departure Assist

A lane departure warning system lets the driver know if the vehicle is about to cross the road markings without indicating.

  Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB)

Collision Avoidance or Advanced Emergency Brake (AEB) uses a camera and a radar to register what is happening in front of the vehicle and provide appropriate avoidance warnings to drivers.

  Fatigue Monitoring

A camera system monitors the driver's state of alertness, wellbeing and focus on the road ahead in real-time. If triggered this will automatically and immediately alert the driver.

The technology also gathers data over time to help drivers understand and improve their performance.
