"This new app gives Americans the information they need to make smart safety decisions when they book their next bus trip," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. "As college students, families and tour groups start thinking about spring and summer travel, we encourage everyone to use the SaferBus app to look before you book your next bus trip."
The SaferBus app, designed for the Apple iPhone and iPad, can be downloaded for free by visiting the Apple iTunes App Store or going to FMCSA's "Look Before You Book" webpage.

This information can be found by contacting the bus company, or if a rider is at a bus terminal or curbside pick-up location, the company name and USDOT number should be visible on the exterior side of the bus. The public also may search for a bus company on the FMCSA website.
