Passenger transport company

Presentation

Ideally located in the heart of the Arve Valley and at the foot of the High-Savoy ski resorts, our site is located in Marnaz, close to Geneva, Lyon Saint Exupéry, Chambéry, Grenoble and Annecy airports.

Our proximity to the Swiss and Italian borders and Alpine ski resorts allows us to benefit from a strategic positioning, promoting our responsiveness and efficiency.

Historical

The SAS Autocars JACQUET is a family business founded in 1976, strongly anchored in the territory of High-Savoy.

Our company has been providing public passenger transportation services for over 40 years.

Our know-how is expressed through the satisfaction of the Organizing Authorities who have granted us and renewed their trust, but also through the testimonies of our travelling customers.

The Jacquet coaches location

Our site of Marnaz (74) is located in the heart of the resorts of Haute-Savoie, in the industrial zone of Valignons.

It houses more than 10,000 m2 of storage space for 35 coaches, administrative services, the operating center, driver reception, a washing area and coach maintenance workshops.

Trained and experienced drivers

The average annual workforce of our company is 30 people and can vary up to 40/45 people in the winter season.

Our company policy is based on driver loyalty, which offers our customers all the guarantees of experienced personnel benefiting from the knowledge of the tour.

A permanent control is operated by the management team on the ethics and behavior of our drivers as well as the respect of the customer. This is why we attach the utmost importance to our policy of recruiting and training drivers.

Drivers are recruited for their professional and behavioral skills. They have a real ability to get involved every day in the exercise of their profession, keeping as a priority “the concept of service”.

The environment at the heart of our concerns

To preserve the natural environment in which we are established and that of all the sites where we are driving around, we have implemented several measures aimed at minimizing nuisance and pollution :

-Choice of recent vehicles, meeting Euro 6 anti-pollution standards
-Collection and recycling of waste from our workshops and offices, by specialized companies,
-A private washing area equipped with a rainwater recovery system, filtering and retention of contaminated water

Our C02 Charter

Facing the challenge of climate change is becoming a priority, not only for our business, but also for our customers and users.
Thus, our company wanted to make its commitment a reality by joining the CVE program (Program of Voluntary Commitments for the Environment) and more particularly its Objective C0² scheme, specific to transport.

The objective of the system is to support our company in reducing the energy and environmental impact in the context of our transport activities.

Thus, our company commits itself, for a period of 3 years in a first step, to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, and therefore its fuel consumption, by developing and following an action plan built on 4 axes of progress:

Axe n°1

The vehicles :
Optimization of fleet and tire management.

Axe n°2

Fuel :
Use of alternative fuel (acquisition of Bio Natural Gas vehicles by the end of 2021).

Axe n°3

The drivers :
Implementation of an Eco-driving program.

Axe n°4

The organisation and management:
Improved management of the company’s environment.
