Bus Industry Safety Council (BISC)

February 2, 2008

February 2nd 2008

The Bus Industry Safety Council is an organization of safety professionals in the intercity bus and motorcoach industry in North America.  The council is affiliated with the American Bus Association ABA, but membership in the council is not limited to ABA member companies and is open to all persons who are interested in and employed in positions promoting safety in the bus and motorcoach industry.  The BISC meeting was held on Feb. 1st & Feb. 2nd 2008 in Virgina Beach.  Riteway Bus Service, Inc. has been involved with BISC for a couple of years now and we are excited to be involved with helping shape safety in the bus & motorcoach industry. 

The big discussion this weekend was the minimum training Requirements for entry-level Commercial Motor Vehicle Operators, Proposed Rule.  While all operators agree that driver training is crucial for bus & motorcoach operations,  the proposed rule must be looked at again or it could have negative unintended consequences for our businesses.
