Vehicle Safety Procedures
Consolidated Bus Transit’s vehicle maintenance is paramount in ensuring safe driving. Vehicles are maintained to the highest standards. We ensure that all our vehicles adhere to all OSHA, federal, and state regulations. All vehicles are routinely maintained either every 3 months or every 6000 miles, whichever comes first.
Here at Consolidated Bus Transit, our vehicles are subject to rigorous inspections on a daily basis to reduce downtime and chances of vehicle breakdowns. We promote and encourage a good relationship between drivers and mechanics to ensure that all potential problems are addressed properly. We take preventative maintenance to resolve issues before they occur.
