Review bus safety information before booking

If you are about to book a trip, how can you tell if a bus company is safe or not?

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration has a "SaferBus Mobile App," that allows users to review company performance and safety information before they book.

Users can search the company's name or DOT number, and see performance data in the five behavioral analysis and safety improvement categories. Those categories include unsafe driving, fatigued driver, driver fitness, controlled substances and/or alcohol, and vehicle maintenance.

The app available on the Apple and Android store. You can check out the app on the FMCSA website here.
