In acknowledging the carnage on our roads that every festive season inadvertently brings, Autopax annually concerns itself with the safety of our passengers and indeed all road users at this busy time. The business proudly ferried approximately 2million people during the period 01 April 2016 to 30 November 2017 without any loss of life and we intend to uphold this as we fast approach the 2017 festive season. All staff have been challenged to play their part in achieving a 100% safety record well beyond the peak period.
Research which was conducted in December 2015 indicated that there are more women using our busses and this number grows every year. As a business, we have identified sport as a means of engaging with our customers. Currently, we sponsor Mamelodi Sundowns, Polokwane City and we are the official carrier of the McDonald’s U/14 tournament, we are proud to add the Sun Pinkstig Series to this list. We continue to build Translux as a luxury brand and golf fits in perfectly with that positioning.
The Sun Pinkstig Series Finale happens during our peak period, this is the time where we have more demand for our services. As a business, we have to this end embarked on a multifaceted safety campaign that is not only external but also internal facing wherein we emphasise safety as the cornerstone of all our peak operations to especially our own drivers. We place emphasis of the role that each member of the Autopax family plays in ensuring that we transport our passengers safely and reliably to all corners of South Africa. The campaign will see staff and management of Autopax spreading the safety message at all our loading points covering all elements related to the roadworthiness of the bus, the attitude of the driver, the safety of our passengers, the condition of our busses etc.
Working with professional golfers will teach our staff a number of principles that go hand in hand with golfing etiquette. These include discipline, punctuality, integrity and focusing on rendering a high quality service at all touch points.
We are looking forward to this relationship and we hope that the golf pro’s will enjoy the ride in our Translux Executive bus, which is equipped with a Toilet, Bar fridge, a kitchenette, conference areas etc. The bus is available for hire to the public through our Autopax Charters department.
