FMCSA Issues Guidance to Organizations and Businesses Transporting Passengers

The guidance clarifies existing regulations and requirements have been changed over the years

According to a news release, the FMCSA has issued guidance to organizations and businesses that transport passengers in interstate commerce. The guidance clarifies existing regulations and requirements that have been changed over the years.

“Passengers traveling by motorcoaches, buses, and vans have every right to expect that the vehicle is safe and that their driver is fully qualified, without exception,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “Motor carriers that are hired and that receive payment to transport passengers must thoroughly understand and fully comply with safety regulations that exist to protect everyone traveling on our nation’s roadways.”

The agency also developed an online resource to help give advice on hotel-related shuttle bus or van operations, employer-related services, educated-related institutions and more.

“Travel by motorcoach, bus, van, or shuttle is among the safest forms of transportation in the country,” said FMCSA Administrator T.F. Scott Darling, III. “This guidance will help improve safety by clarifying which federal safety rules apply to certain passenger carrier operations.”
