Md. coach co. wins TSX approval for safety

Posted on March 27, 2012

Glenelg, Md.-based Eyre Bus, Tour & Travel became TSX-approved as a safer motor carrier, having successfully completed the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR) with the highest possible score. Transportation Safety Exchange (TSX) is the ground transportation industry's only independent rating organization that inspects, monitors and reports the safety performance of motor carriers.

"We are thrilled to earn this distinction, because it demonstrates that we have implemented the highest standards of safety," said Eyre Bus, Tour & Travel CEO Ron Eyre. "We take our commitment to safety measures very seriously, and now with TSX Approval, we can be recognized for achieving and maintaining the most stringent safety standards. It is especially exciting that we earned the highest possible score that TSX awards. As a company, we have committed ourselves to safety and it is very rewarding to be recognized for that commitment."

Passenger trip organizers and sponsors all bear responsibility and potential risk for operator performance and safety. They must demonstrate that they have used the highest standard of care possible in selecting a motor carrier. As passenger trip organizers and sponsors perform their due diligence, TSX Approval will help them identify their safest options.

TSX is an independent rating organization that inspects, monitors and reports the safety performance of motor carriers in the ground transportation industry.
