Public and private bus transportation providers are considered common carriers under California law. This matters in a legal context because common carriers are held to a higher standard of care than other drivers and have a legal duty to protect passengers’ safety.

Bus transportation providers are expected to provide: safe passage for bus riders to enter and exit the bus, safe transport of bus passengers, protection of bus riders against harm, including harm from other passengers, proper screening and training of its employees, and maintenance of the buses for safety.  Bus companies that fail to protect their passengers in this manner can be held liable for the damages to passengers as a result of their negligence.

Effective in 2018, California law requires that all new commercial buses be equipped with seatbelts. For all commercial buses that have seatbelts, bus companies are required to keep the seatbelts in good working order, and bus drivers are required to tell passengers before each trip that they are required to use their seatbelts. PARRIS Law Firm applauds this law, as wearing a seatbelt in any motor vehicle is a crucial means of minimizing the likelihood of injury or death in an accident.
