NYSDOT recently introduced a draft proposal for a Performance Based Bus Safety Program. This proposal would separte operators into three categories based on their annual compliance with state safety requirements. Department safety compliance efforts will be commensurate with operator performance. More attention will be focused on those with ahigher out of service rates or other operational deficiencies.
To find out more about this proposal, please visit their website at: http://www.dot.ny.gov/divisions/operating/oss/bus/performance
All inspection program operators and stakeholders are encouraged to provide input and comments concerning this proposal no later than April 1, 2013 by using the email link on their website
