Ontario waives CVOR registration for U.S. bus operators

Posted on July 26, 2006

U.S. bus operators no longer need to register with the Ontario Commercial Vehicle Operator Registration (CVOR) system when traveling in the Canadian province. Due to regulatory amendments made Jan. 1, 2006, intended for the trucking industry, U.S. bus operators were inadvertently subjected to the CVOR requirement. Inspections of U.S.-based coaches by Ontario officers this summer resulted in warnings to American carriers for no CVOR registration. Historically, U.S.-based bus operators were exempt from having to register in CVOR. Motor Coach Canada and the American Bus Association worked with government officials in Ontario to end the requirement. Ontario’s Ministry of Transportation issued an enforcement bulletin to this effect on July 18, 2006. Although U.S. operators are not required to register in CVOR, there are benefits to voluntary registration. By registering, carrier safety performance within Ontario is evaluated on reported fleet size, which benefits the carrier. Carriers not registered are evaluated on a default fleet size of just one vehicle. There is no fee to register and no annual renewal fee.
