Dart Network adding Bose Ride seats

March 16, 2015

The Dart Network is offering Bose Ride seats to its drivers. Long-haul drivers for Dartco, a member of the network, who have been with the company 3 or more years and drive a truck with less than 250,000 mi. on it, will be among the first to receive the seats.

Dart Transit Company is offering the seat as an alternate to its sign-on bonus for newly contracted owner-operators.  Dart’s current owner-operators are eligible to purchase the seat at Dart’s cost, plus installation. 

“We are grateful for the hard work and dedication that drivers put in their job every day,” said Joe Kilgore, Dartco operations manager.  “The Bose seat is one way we are giving back to and investing in our drivers.”

The Bose Ride senses a person’s position and acceleration and generates counteracting forces, eliminating vibrations up to 90%, the company said.

“Drivers spend a lot of time in their truck,” Kilgore said, “and being comfortable while they drive is important.  When we heard how much our drivers could possibly benefit from the Bose seats, we jumped at the opportunity to serve them.”

The Bose seat will also be an added incentive for driver trainers, who will receive seats for both the driver and passenger, all free of charge.
