Clare visiting First Bus control room in Bristol with Thangam Debbonaire, Labour's candidate for Bristol West

Matthew Parker from First Group updated Clare and Thangam on new bus technology, the way bus drivers are monitored for their fuel efficient driving, bus regulation, how they endeavour to meet their timetables and much more. After the visit Clare said, 'In order to make the air quality in Bristol safer for all residents, we need to make public transport a much more attractive option. It was really interesting to hear from Matthew about their Drive Green initiative that monitors bus drivers and how the control room tracks schedules in order to try to achieve an even flow of service. However, more needs to be done by local authorities in order for road space to be used to its optimum.'
