1. Tracking Fleet Vehicles

Fuel Cost Savings:
Through meticulous management and weekly driver performance reviews, we achieve fuel savings of between 0 – 20%, with current savings averaging 12%. This not only benefits the environment but also contributes to our ability to offer competitive pricing, by passing savings on to our school clients.

At Belle Vue, we're passionate about delivering not just exceptional journeys across the North West, the UK, and the EU, but also ensuring your safety and comfort with our fleet of 80 advanced vehicles.

Our coaches and buses are kitted out with the latest Q Star and Actia Tracking Systems, giving us and you real- time insights into every journey. This tech not only boosts our efficiency and reduces emissions but also helps us save on fuel costs, savings we pass directly to you.

2. Integrating Transport

The second way BELLE VUE save you money is we look at all of your transport movements across the year (all the trips you normally travel) and we look and assess where we can save you money on your annual spend.

We do this by cutting out dead mileage! By integrating your transport with our current transport movements across the fleet. The nearest vehicles to your school and destination centres are allocated making the travel costs efficient! Rather than pay for vehicles to sit outside tourist attractions you only pay for the movements there and back! All these savings mean we pass discounts on to schools and colleges, especially where we do all the work from these establishments.

Regular transport clients receive discounts off their annual spend, they receive the same high standard of vehicle(s) on their contract all the time, with the same driver(s) so we get to know your transport movements and be more efficient and offer a higher personal service to your teachers.

3. Government Funded Vehicles

We’re cost effective because many of our school bus fleet vehicles are government funded through TfGM (Transport for Greater Manchester) as part of our school contracts. Rather than have large capital outlays for vehicle costs (such as vehicle finance) we only have insurance and maintenance costs which are relatively low compared to the industry standard.

This results in low standing vehicle costs which means your overall price is far lower. If we had finance of £3000 a month for a new coach, that is £36,000 per year at 250 operational days equating to £144 a day just on the finance. This saving is saved for schools and colleges on their school trips when utilising Government Funded School Buses in the BELLE VUE Fleet!
