// 112 - The European emergency number to improve road safety for all

The European bus and coach industry and the European Commission jointly promote the Single European Emergency Number 112 Europe-wide to enhance road safety and provide a rapid and effective response in case of a road accident.


On the occasion of the “European 112 Day”, the European bus and coach industry, as represented by the International Road Transport Union (IRU) and the European Commission (EC) have joined forces to promote the Single European Emergency Number 112 among bus, coach, taxi and truck operators and their customers across Europe.

In a joint statement, European Commission Vice Presidents Neelie Kroes and Siim Kallas, stressed: "This is the start of a year-long campaign to make people travelling around the EU aware of the number which could save their lives: 112, Europe's single emergency number. We are delighted that the International Road Transport Union has joined the European Commission in this initiative.”

112 is a Single European emergency number, which can be dialled from fixed and mobile phones free of charge, throughout the EU. 112 calls are answered by an operator who handles the request either directly or by transferring it to the appropriate emergency service (police, ambulance or fire brigade).

For true road transport professionals, every road accident is one too many. Road safety has always been and will remain at the core of Smart Move and its partners’ priorities. Raising the awareness of company managers, their drivers and especially their passengers and customers in the bus and coach sector, is part of the bus and coach industry culture. The Single European Emergency Number 112 constitutes a very efficient tool to further improve road safety, security, and the efficiency of response in emergency cases.

// French bus gets the first bus driving simulator

In June 2011, a group of public transport Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) gathered in Biarritz, France, to unveil the first bus equipped to accommodate driving simulator. This mobile training platform, called Cassiopeia, will be used to train 7,000 employees of the group’s 170 members.

The simulator reproduces an authentic driving position, in which the driver faces three 40 inches screens. Cassiopeia can simulate more than fifty scenarios in three modules of behavior in situations of accident, eco-driving and maneuvering, which are not possible to reproduce otherwise.

The bus that hosts this simulator, the Evadys Irisbus, also has a small training room of a dozen places. If the experiment proves successful, the group of coach plans to acquire other equipment of this type.
