There’s no doubt that size definitely works in your favor in the safety department. If you’re in a Honda Accord, a coach would be a pretty formidable something to meet on the road. Honestly, if we were choosing to be in one of those vehicles when they collided, we ‘d choose the coach, hands down.

Driver hiring standards. Let it be known: we don’t just hire anybody. It is of the utmost importance to us that we don’t compromise safety for any who choose to ride with us. We have a stringent hiring process to ensure that only those whose personal behaviors, training and experience make them a great choice for our company and our passengers.

Normal maintenance checks. In addition to complying with all regulations to be able to qualify for a high safety rating, and being very cautious about who we prefer to drive for us, we also deal with our fleet, too. All of our vehicles undergo routine maintenance checks to ensure that everything is in fine order and won’t compromise safety for anyone aboard.
