ABA teams with eVerifile

Posted on August 8, 2012

eVerifile, an employment screening and workforce solutions company, announced it will provide employee credentialing solutions to the American Bus Association (ABA).

To ensure ABA is complying with and implementing new transportation safety regulations, eVerifile also will consult with the ABA on a number of regulatory requirements instituted by the U.S.’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA), National Transportation Safety Board and Transportation Security Administration, and Transport Canada.

The total number of bus fatalities in the U.S. increased to 218 in 2011 from 172 in 2008, according to the FTA. Motorcoach safety has received increased public attention as a result of serious accidents during 2011. Terrorism remains another concern surrounding passenger transportation companies.

“The ABA has a strong commitment to helping fulfill the transportation and travel needs of the American public,” said ABA President/CEO Peter J. Pantuso. “With the help of eVerifile, we will improve protection of our passengers whether they are on long distance or local motorcoach trips.”

Canada's bus safety record is extremely reliable — over the past decade, bus passengers comprised less than 0.3 percent of road fatalities. Nonetheless, bus passenger safety is an ongoing concern of Transport Canada, provincial and territorial governments, and the public.
