New Smartphone App Provides Safety Data on Truck and Bus Companies

FMCSA has released a new app intended to make performance information more accessible.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has released a new smartphone app that will allow for more convenient access to currently available online safety performance information for interstate truck and bus companies. "By making currently available safety information on interstate truck and bus companies more easily accessible for both law enforcement personnel and the general public, we are providing greater transparency while making our roadways safer for everyone. Safety is our highest priority, so we are committed to using every resource available at our finger tips to ensure the safety of travelers," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.

The app is called "QCMobile" and is expected to be used by state and federal law enforcement personnel, as well as insurers, brokers, freight-forwarders, and others interested in reviewing the DOT registration and safety performance information.

"FMCSA will continue to use all the tools, resources, and partnerships available to further strengthen commercial vehicle safety across the country," said FMCSA Acting Administrator Scott Darling. "Aggressive safety enforcement, research, and technology development and deployment, combined with strong stakeholder participation, will continue to be directed toward removing unsafe trucks and buses from our roadways and protecting every traveler from needless harm."
