Motorcoach Fact Sheet

About this Fact Sheet

The FMCSA has significantly stepped-up its safety enforcement of motorcoaches and other commercial passenger carriers. For example, since the release of the original Motorcoach Safety Action Plan, FMCSA’s imminent hazard out-of-service orders increased from 0 in 2009 to 28 in 2012. This is when a passenger carrier is forced to immediately cease all transportation services based on serious safety violations that pose an imminent hazard to public safety. 

This fact sheet highlights our progress and latest efforts.
