Travel safety with Megabus.com as seat belts are legally required

Did you know? Megabus.com, city-to-city, express bus company offers fares from $1.

Since its launch on April 10, 2006, megabus.com reports serving more than 30 million travelers on their up-to-date coach buses equipped with three-point lap/shoulder seat belts.

Did you know? Each year megabus.com provides transportation for nine million customers safely on more than 200,000 trips using the modern fleet of double-decker buses.

The only complaint I've hear from consumers concerns Megabus service is the expansion of more locations.

Did you know? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently required lap/shoulder seat belts for all passengers on over-the-road (“city-to-city”) buses.

Statistically, NHTSA approximations that by installing lap/shoulder seat belts on over-the-road (“city-to-city”) buses will save 1.7 to 9.2 lives per year. It further assesses the cost of adding lap/shoulder belts as $2,110 per vehicle, with lifetime fuel costs due to amplified weight of the bus as an extra $794 to $1,077 per vehicle.

NHTSA said their standards agenda was published in the Federal Register on November 25, 2013 and take effect in 3 years for all current buses sold, and do not include retrofit obligation for current buses.

You should know, megabus.com operates bus service from 13 cities to include: Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Texas Triangle (Dallas, Houston, San Antonio), Washington D.C. and Toronto.
