The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration is inviting comments until Nov. 27 on its proposal to implement National Transportation Safety Board recommendations that motorcoach operators provide pre-trip safety information to their passengers. FMCSA, in conjunction with stakeholders, has developed a basic plan for all motorcoach companies to implement a passenger safety awareness program.
FMCSA’s plan would approve several methods of informing passengers using visual and/or audio presentation, with or without technology assistance. FMCSA seeks motorcoach industry and stakeholder input in finalizing the plan. The goal of this initiative is to develop, and encourage adoption of, passenger safety awareness guidelines suited for diverse motorcoach operational types.
