Ensuring Safer Buses
The limousine industry has reached the point where it can’t get enough of buses. Whether running executive vans, minibuses, or motorcoaches, operators need to stay up to speed on a new category of fleet vehicle rules and logistics, separate from sedans and SUVs. A presentation Nov. 14 from 10:40am to 11:50am on Bus Safety will look at Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Coach Safety Administration (FMCSA) driven regulations, guidelines, and tricks of the trade.
“We are going to give attendees ‘out of the box’ insight into the bus industry,” says panel moderator Tom Holden of Rose Chauffeured Transportation in Charlotte, N.C. “Our panel consists of experts who run large motorcoach operations, and bus safety experts from the insurance industry and our own industry.”
Operators will come away with best practices on training and safety and many resources available to help operators of all sizes run a better bus operation, Holden says. Operators continually need to be updated on DOT and FMCSA ever-changing regulations, and what’s coming down the road, he adds.
Further, the panel will offer advice and tips on how to manage all records and paperwork, and prepare for audits. “We know operators have many questions regarding bus operations, and our panelists welcome questions from the audience in this interactive session,” Holden says.

“The session will help operators take an intellectual look into whether they should pursue this or not. It’s a completely different deal than running a sedan, mini-bus, or limo. You need to really think it through and understand the math. There’s a heck of a lot of regulations.”
“We’ll talk about analyzing your business and your market so you can make an informed decision on whether to add coach buses to your fleet,” adds panelist Eric Devlin, owner and CEO of Premier Transportation Services in Dallas. The session
