Is anyone taking a trip via bus line this summer? (how to check safety info)
Busses are an increasingly popular option for travel considering how high the costs of flights are these days. While everyone knows the names of the big airlines- a very tightly regulated industry, the bus line industry is not as rigorously policed or well known- save for greyhound maybe. Bus lines must have violations in several key areas in order for the government to get involved- from the article “We've got a lot of unsafe carriers that are getting a 'Satisfactory' rating, but they've got major violations either in maintenance or in driver performance and behavior."
