This is the bus that we were tracking for brake drag in New Flyer Connect® earlier in the week. As indicated by New Flyer Connect®, it was an issue with the four PSI switch on the rear curbside axle. In this case, New Flyer Connect® was able to save us many hours of diagnostic time in locating the root cause of this failure.
– Field Technical Service Specialist
I use all of the resources here (drivers, New Flyer Connect®, technicians). If something is reported, I determine the severity and whether or not to take the bus out of service. Your support is great because it’s not always that a driver sees a malfunction or trouble light come on. At times they come on and go right back off.
