London -- Michelin Fleet Solutionshas increased its share of the major bus fleet market to include vehicles operating on 98 per cent of red London bus routes within the M25 - all supported on pence per mile (PPM) contracts.
The combined agreements see well over 8000 vehicles under the management of London Buses - part of Transport for London (TfL) - operating primarily on 245/70 R 19.5 and 275/70 R 22.5 Michelin X InCity tyres.
As part of the contract, Michelin will carry out tyre fitment, maintenance and fleet inspections on every vehicle, ensuring all tyres in service are in good condition. This is done by 60 Michelin staff based full-time in bus depots across London. Inspections also include tyre pressure checks and adjustments to settings recommended by Michelin for each vehicle type - helping to maximise tyre life and fuel economy.
