FMCSA unveils multilingual bus safety checklist

Posted on May 14, 2012

As part of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) effort to ensure consumers have the information they need to make smart safety decisions when booking a bus trip, the agency unveiled its multilingual Bus Safety Consumer Checklist in eight different languages: Spanish, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean, French, German, Japanese and Vietnamese.

Free to the public at www.fmcsa.dot.gov/safety-security/pcs/index.aspx, the bus safety checklist encourages travelers to first look at the on-road safety performance, safety rating and consumer complaint history of a bus company before buying a ticket or booking a trip.

In addition to using the bus safety checklist, consumers can download for free FMCSA’s SaferBus app, which provides quick and easy access to the safety records on nearly 6,000 interstate passenger carriers operating in the United States.
