Questions smart consumers ask when shopping for motor coach charter services:
❑ What is your company’s policy regarding the number of hours a driver can work? Can you affirm that our driver will be in full compliance with the Canadian (and US rules) throughout the course of our trip?
The law restricts driving time to 13 hours in a day, after which the driver must take 8 consecutive hours off-duty before driving again. In the US, these hours are 10 and 8 respectively. It is unlawful for any person to request or require a driver to break these rules.
❑ Will our motor coach have a valid safety inspection sticker?
The law requires buses to undergo a periodic mechanical inspection. The safety sticker must be placed on the front right corner of the coach and indicate the day and month of inspection.
For Travel to the USA
❑ Does your company hold an Operating Authority issued by the United States Department of Transportation? If so, what is your US DOT number? The US DOT number can be verified through the US DOT web site at: http://www.safersys.org/ In addition, insurance required by US DOT for US travel
(US $5 million) can be verified on this web site. The US DOT number must be displayed on the side of the coach.
