Audit Initiated of FMCSA's Motor Coach Safety Program
The Office of Inspector General plans to audit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Motor Coach Safety Program. Our audit objective is to determine whether FMCSA effectively implemented its National Motor Coach Safety Program. This program emphasizes (1) conducting more compliance reviews of motor coach carriers; (2) establishing a prioritization system for motor coach carrier compliance reviews; (3) mandating state motor coach inspection programs; (4) improving safety data, including a bus crash causation study; (5) reducing motor coach fires; and (6) expediting safety audits of new motor coach carriers.
