Safety & Technology

Constant vigilance and determined commitment to achieve the highest status of safety is not only a practice, it is our second nature.

Our ongoing Safety Procedures include:

At Global Paratransit, our highest priority is the safety of our riders and staff. The strict implementation of safety principles and procedures isn’t only engrained in written rules, it is a way of life practiced constantly in our day to day operations by every employee.

Rising above safety standards is an ongoing process that requires an all hands on deck effort at all times. We take great pride in knowing that each GPI employee makes safe operations their personal responsibility.

Our Safety Culture

We’re driven to further extend our safety practices with ongoing training, uncompromising safety audits and employee engagement in safety performance updates. Each Global Paratransit team member undergoes our Employee Safety program, a meticulous process which consists of ongoing training that we fully integrated in our daily practices. Reinforcing this program ensures that all of our team members practice daily safety habits to guarantee the constant protection of our riders.

Employee Incentive Program:

GPI promotes a program designed to record and reward our drivers on safety-related performances. This program focuses mainly on honoring our drivers that reach a certain number of miles without a preventable accident.

Drivers Safety Classes:

This program assists our drivers in responding to incidents and preparing proper documentation of said incident. This program is devised to further increase awareness and to remind our drivers that safe operations require diligence, dedication and reinforcement on a consistent basis.

Vehicle Safety Program:

Aside from the technological advancements added to our transit vehicles for our riders’ safety, Global Paratransit has outfitted our vehicles with decals. These decals are intended to warn other drivers that GPI vehicles stop, or are prone to frequent stops to accommodate our passengers.

Our Safety Technology

On top of the effort on educating and implementing our safety procedure to our employees, Global Paratransit explores other avenues to further enforce the safety of our riders.

Merging an educated staff and the most modern technology available in the transit business has allowed us to increase the performance of our safety measures, and rise above the usual standards in the paratransit industry.
