What’s the fuss about the bus?
Travelling by bus is comfortable and safe, but there are many rules a bus company has to adhere to. We sometimes explain this during trips so you understand why we depart at certain times or stop at specific points and intervals. Here are some key rules:
- A driver may drive 9 hours per day and once per week 10 hours.
- A driver may work 15 hours per day. If the driver leaves by 07h00 from the garage, he must return by 22h00.
- A driver may drive 4,5 hours in one go. After that he needs to rest minimal 45 minutes, or he should take his rest in 2 sessions of 15 en 30 minutes.
- The length of the day may be extended in two ways. First, if the driver has a resting period of 9 hours in between the outbound and inbound journeys. Second, if the driver is accompanied by a second driver the total length of the day can be increased significantly.
