The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Friday, Dec. 10, announced that it has revoked the U.S. Department of Transportation registration of Pennsylvania-based charter bus company RLT Tours and has ordered the company to cease all intrastate and interstate passenger carrier operations.

FMCSA says its compliance review found the bus company in violation of multiple federal safety regulations, including hours-of-service requirements for drivers, insurance requirements, vehicle maintenance standards and drug and alcohol testing compliance.

RLT Tours cannot resume transportation services until the company takes corrective action to show they are in compliance with federal safety regulations. In addition, the motor carrier was issued a civil penalty of $8,640.
