Bus Safety Consultations



Introduction

Canada’s bus safety record is extremely good - over the past decade, bus passengers comprised fewer than 0.3% of road fatalities. Nonetheless, bus passenger safety is an ongoing concern of Transport Canada, provincial and territorial governments and the public.

As part of its ongoing program, Transport Canada recently conducted a review of current bus safety research and regulations. This review included consultations to seek input from stakeholders.

Between June 1999 and June 2000, Transport Canada (assisted by its provincial and territorial partners, the Institute on Governance, and PriceWaterhouseCoopers) held regional consultations on school bus and motor coach safety. The summary reports of these meetings are available below.
