SmarTire System, a provider of wireless sensing and control systems, has announced that Coach USA, an operator of scheduled bus routes, motor coach tours, charters, and city sightseeing tours, has selected SmarTire as its fleet tire pressure monitoring systems provider.
Effective immediately, Coach USA will require that new coaches ordered from all manufacturers be equipped with SmarTire’s tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS). SmarTire’s active TPMS has been designed to enable fleet operators to efficiently maintain top tire performance, reducing tire failures, roadside downtime, fuel consumption and tire costs while increasing passenger and driver safety and confidence. The SmartWave TPMS, which can be installed on any existing vehicle, displays each tire’s temperature and pressure information. If the system detects a loss of air pressure or abnormally high tire temperature, a warning automatically alerts the driver to the condition.
Dave Warkentin, president of SmarTire, said: This commitment and order is the result of over one year of development and road testing, and we believe that it successfully proves the value of our tire pressure monitoring products for fleet customers in the motor coach market. We are very pleased to have been selected by Coach USA, and we look forward to a long lasting, rewarding relationship.
