TransitSim™ Bus Driving Simulator Benefits
Students are introduced and challenged on various transit operator skills including references to pivot point, push-pull steering, momentary floor-mounted turn signals (now known as ‘directionals’), leaning technique, and other aspects of operating a fixed route bus. These skills will likely be foreign concepts to the new hire candidate, yet they must be learned and mastered during the early stages of the training process. This process challenges each student operator to learn a core set of skills, behaviors, and techniques that will enable them to operate the bus—safely and effectively.
Transit simulation training allows practice of critical decision-making skills and reinforces positive decision making, situation and spacial awareness in a realistic, risk-free environment.
Simulation-based training enhances initial bus operator training, periodic refresher training, and driver assessments allowing you to conduct practical real world training, in different mass transit scenarios and for different road and atmospheric conditions. Simulation based training with L3Harris driving simulators reinforces positive decision making, situation and spatial awareness, and promotes mastery of core skills through training in a realistic, risk-free environment with repeatable scenarios. Our experts work directly with your local instructional teams to ensure the desired skills and safe driving behaviors transfer into observable daily habits.
