Charter Bus Safety

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration recently released a message coming out again 3rd party compliance reviews and vehicle inspections.
Recently, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has received numerous inquiries regarding third-party inspectors offering “safety certifications.

Please note the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, an agency of the United States Department of Transportation, is the only agency authorized by the United States Congress to issue Federal interstate operating authority registration, to regulate interstate passenger motor carriers, and to determine their eligibility for continued operations.

Here at The BusBank, we understand the importance of safety in the motor coach industry. We continue to monitor information provided by the Federal Motor Coach Carrier Safety Administration. This information along with other information such as age of equipment and the performance of an operator on The BusBank chartered trips are some of the information  used to determine if an operator can stay part of our operator network. The biggest portion of this is that an operator must be in good standing with the FMCSA.

If you ever have questions about an operator that you book thru The BusBank, we will be happy to provide you with information about this.

We want our customers to have a wonderful and safe bus charter experience. Therefore, we will continue to follow our current methods and will be closely following any changes in regulations or safety improvements by the industry to stay at the forefront of the industry.
