A Brief Orientation
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) maintains the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS). MCMIS contains information on the safety fitness of commercial motor carriers (truck & bus) and hazardous material (HM) shippers subject to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR) and the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). This information is available to the general public through the MCMIS Data Dissemination Program.
This catalog describes the Data Dissemination Program. It identifies certain motor carrier data available to the public, and explains how to obtain these data. Requests for data should be sent to:
Department of Transportation
