Streamlining Fleet Operations: Maximizing Efficiency with Fleet Fuel Cards for School Buses, Charter Buses, Limousines, and Party Buses

In the fast-paced world of public transportation, managing fuel expenses, tax exemptions, and optimizing fleet operations are critical for maintaining profitability and ensuring smooth operations. Fleet fuel cards have emerged as an indispensable tool for businesses operating school buses, charter buses, limousines, and party buses. These cards not only offer seamless fueling options but also provide a range of features such as tax exemptions, cardlock fueling locations with adequate ingress/egress, nationwide acceptance, online account management, departmental reporting, GPS integration, strict purchase controls, onsite tank transaction integration, custom reporting, and much more. Let’s explore the benefits of the Rebel Fleet card and how we can revolutionize the way your transportation business operates.

BENEFITS

Wholesale-Based Purchasing Program:

Fleet Owners are often enticed by fleet cards offering “Discounts at The Pump” with savings of $0.05 to $0.10 cents per gallon off the posted price. While this may seem like a good deal, real savings come from participating in a wholesale purchasing program, available only through ultimate petroleum distributors with a network of wholesale purchasing locations.

As the cost of oil rises, the price of fuel at the pump naturally increases to keep up with the cost of inventory replacement. However, when the cost of oil falls, the retail stations will tend to hold their prices as long as possible before dropping.

Back Office Organization:

Managing a fleet of school buses, charter buses, limousines, and party buses involves extensive administrative tasks. How much time are you wasting moving information from invoices, or even simple excel spreadsheets provided by your current fuel provider, into your telematics, fleet maintenance, or cost accounting systems?  The Rebel Fleet card can simplify back-office operations by providing detailed transaction reports, expense tracking, tax reporting, and comprehensive data analysis. These tools assist in budgeting, cost allocation, and evaluating fuel consumption patterns across the fleet. With enhanced visibility into fuel expenses, businesses can identify potential areas for improvement and implement strategies to optimize their operations further.

Multiple Fleet Fueling Networks:

Our wholesale-based fuel purchasing programs are available at 3,000 locations nationwide.  If there is not a location near a particular route, a Rebel Fleet card can also be used to purchase fuel in over 180,000 locations, and maintenance in over 50,000 service facilities nationwide.  Regardless of the card used, all transactions are seamlessly integrated into our billing and customer portal.

Tax Exemptions:

The Rebel Fleet card comes with additional benefits such as tax exemptions offered at the pump. For example, a bus or motorcoach used for intercity or local travel, designed for 20 or more passengers, qualifies for a federal tax credit of $.17 per gallon when transporting for compensation. Further, we can offer tax exemptions for school districts and other special education services.  Our ability to exempt these transactions at the time of purchase can save a company countless hours per year accounting for, and filing for, the Federal tax exemption.

Online Account Management:

With Rebel Fleet you have full access to your account through our online portal.  You will have the ability to view invoices & pay your invoice online, view price quotes, view cards, order cards, cancel cards, view transaction history, view tax exemptions, IFTA reporting, and download/export all the above.

Telematic Integration:

Telematics, the integration of telecommunications and vehicle data, is transforming the way businesses manage their fleets. The Rebel Fleet card excels at telematic integration which enables seamless data exchange between your fueling activity and your fleet management software. This integration provides valuable insights into vehicle performance, fuel efficiency, and maintenance needs. By analyzing telematics data, bus operators can optimize fuel consumption, identify potential maintenance issues, and improve overall fleet efficiency, including being able to identify if their vehicle was actually at the fueling location at the same time as the transaction occurred.

Strict Controls:

Our cards come with controls that strictly enforce your bus/limo/charter company’s fuel purchasing policies. These controls empower you to limit such things as the number of transactions per day, grades of fuel that can be purchased, the gallons per day, week, or month, the times of day/days of the week when cards are able to work, and much more.  By setting such customized controls, your contracting or construction company can prevent unauthorized spending, reduce fuel theft, and reduce the overall cost of fuel management.  These controls consistently provide welcome savings to our bus/limo/charter customers’ bottom lines.

Unusual Activity Reporting:

Strict Controls at the site are not always the final answer.  Often our bus/limo/charter customers want the ability to allow certain behavior to occur even though it might deviate from the general fuel purchasing policy.  For example, they may wish to allow their employees to have access to fuel over the weekend, but simply would like to be advised when this occurs.  Our answer to this type of scenario is to send Unusual Activity Alerts via email whenever they occur.   If the point of sale allows an unauthorized transaction the company will receive an Unusual Activity Report.  We can alert you, or any number of people in your organization, if your employees buy the wrong product, or if they exceed a reasonable number of transactions per day, week or month; if too many gallons were purchased, or if there was a transaction outside of the allowed hours during the day. Again, providing exceptional value and savings to your bottom-line.
