Matthews.ie have given their regular commuters an early Christmas present with the news that their Taxsaver tickets will not be increased for 2014, thanks to savings made through the company’s pioneering work in fuel management.
“Our loyal regular commuters are huge users of our Taxsaver tickets, and can save up to €1,118 a year by purchasing via this method through www.matthews.ie,” said Managing Director Paddy Matthews.
“They are the most tax-efficient way to commute in reliability and comfort and can be purchased on a three, six or twelve month basis.
“Thanks to our fuel management team, the highly-skilled drivers here at Matthews and the savings that they have made through our eco driving methods, we are in a position to keep our pre-purchased Taxsaver prices stable for 2014.
Matthews recently became Ireland’s most environmentally friendly passenger transport company when they were the first public transport company in the UK or Ireland – and only the second in the world – to achieve the new ISO 50001 energy management accreditation.
The company also beat off hefty competition to claim the Care For The Environment award at the Fleet Bus and Coach Awards at Citywest Hotel.
The awards recognise excellence in the transport industry as a whole in Ireland.
This is the third energy award that Matthews have picked up in recent years, coming on the back of the SEAI Sustainable Energy Awards 2012 and 2010 for their work in fuel and energy management.
In 2009 Matthews won the Road Safety Association’s Leading Lights Safety Award in recognition of our safety procedures, on-going driver training, GPS tracking, on-board CCTV use and constant safety checks.
