Some coaches are also equipped with safety technology such as drive cam, satellite tracking, and advance fire protection. The coaches are well maintained and comfortable, and they tend to reach their destinations in good time - albeit sometimes at high speed.

They have a seat number system in place, in order to avoid confusion when boarding. Coaches have scheduled stops along the route and this will be announced by the on-board crew before a scheduled stop.
