Red Arrow is very proud of our corporate commitment to safety and training. Our motorcoach operators go through an annual training in our MTU (Mobile Training Unit) simulator, which is very similar to what is used in the aviation industry, to keep their skills sharp and to ensure the safety of our passengers traveling with us. We also offer special incentives for drivers achieving a 12-month level of safe driving.
All full-time coach operators receive full benefits, including dental, medical and optical benefits. Employees also benefit from our RSP matching program.
All employees also receive free stand-by travel anywhere Red Arrow Motorcoach travels.
