FMCSA slaps fine on Omnibus Express
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration imposed $55,000 in fines on Ominbus Express on Wednesday for operating buses not accessible to passengers with disabilities. The fines came with an order to Ominbus to upgrade its fleet to meet ADA requirements buy July 1 or have its operating authority revoked. Omnibus is a commercial passenger bus company based in Houston, TX.
“Thousands of people rely every day on motorcoaches and other types of commercial passenger buses to travel where they need to go safely and efficiently,” said FMCSA Administrator Anne S. Ferro. “We owe it to the traveling public to vigorously enforce ADA requirements, and ensure commercial buses are safe and accessible for everyone.”
