A revolutionary new approach to teaching bus operators using virtual reality.

[Seattle, WA] – MXTreality, in partnership with Pierce Transit, has launched a groundbreaking virtual reality training suite specifically designed for bus driver training. The 'Drivers of Tomorrow' Virtual Training suite provides immersive and interactive experiences to help trainees master the skills and knowledge required to pass their CDL Class B Pre-Trip test and operate a bus safely and efficiently.

Over the past few years, MXTreality has developed several driver training simulators. This collaboration with Pierce Transit merges 50 years of driver training expertise with a decade of virtual software experience, creating an effective, engaging, and enjoyable training solution.

The collaboration is comprised of three driver training programs. The first module supplements classroom instruction and enriches bus knowledge.

Reginald Reese, PT’s Chief Safety Officer, states:

“The VR training offers a unique opportunity for bus driver trainees to encounter job challenges in a controlled, safe environment before taking to the road. This hands-on training approach boosts confidence and enhances overall driving performance, significantly reducing risks and associated costs.”

The second module helps drivers master the essentials of their Pre-Trip exam.

“We’re excited to bring this new VR training suite to the market, and we've already seen record CDL pass rates,” said Fran Draxton, Bus Training Assistant Manager at Pierce Transit.

The third module supports operators throughout their career with a focus on driving: core driving maneuvers for new drivers, zone practice for all levels, adaptable situational practice for advanced drivers, and accident avoidance scenarios for those needing re-training.

MXTreality CEO Jeff Rayner adds

"DoT's versatile simulator suite of experiences is compatible with both traditional monitor setups and Virtual Reality, allowing trainees to learn and self-test at any time, while transit authorities can now offer driver simulation training in compact spaces that were previously impractical. This innovation leads to increased confidence, greater job satisfaction, reduced risk, attraction of new drivers, and savings through higher pass rates and decreased risk"

The VR training suite is available to transportation companies and commercial bus driving authorities nationwide. It is designed to supplement traditional classroom and behind-the-wheel training, attract new drivers, improve learning efficacy, and reduce costs associated with failed CDL tests, potentially saving companies like Pierce Transit hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.
