FMCSA puts Penn. bus co. out of service

Posted on March 30, 2011

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (U.S. DOT) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) placed Pennsylvania-based passenger bus company Super Luxury Tours out-of-service and suspended the company’s U.S. DOT operating authority for violating insurance requirements for commercial motor carriers. Under the out-of-service order, Super Luxury Tours is prohibited from operating in interstate transportation services. 

“Safety is our number one priority,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “FMCSA will use every available resource to pursue and shut down passenger bus companies that evade federal safety regulations and put motorists at risk.”

On March 14, 2011, Super Luxury Tours was involved in a fatal New Jersey Turnpike crash that killed two people. FMCSA’s investigation of the bus company’s involvement in the crash is ongoing.
