Busline Safety Records Available Online

(Metro) If you're thinking of booking a trip on a bus this summer, federal regulators urge you to "look before you book."  

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says it's important for customers to research bus company safety records before they buy a ticket. 

You should not think only about price and convenience when buying bus tickets for interstate travel. 

Consumers can now check bus company safety records by downloading the new Safer Bus mobile app. 

There, they'll be able to see if the company is licensed to operate -- and also check on driver safety records and vehicle maintenance history.

There were 280 fatal crashes involving buses in 2013 and that's an eleven-percent increase from the year before.
