Federal guidelines urge motorcoach operators to deliver a pre-trip safety message to passengers–every trip, every time–after passenger boarding and prior to departure. Make it easier for your drivers to stay compliant with federal guidelines. Use ABA’s passenger safety messages to keep your driver focused on safety performance and customer service–not on reading from a script.
