Typed and double-spaced To Cancel or Not to Cancel a Long Planned Charter Bus Trip
I work in transportation and thus will be reviewing the safety protocols in the charter bus industry. Charter bus companies are constantly managing a fine line between operating in a safe manner and procuring a profit. It’s no surprise that according to the SBA 25% of transportation companies fail within their first year of operations, and that figure increases to 60% when analyzing the five-year success rate (SBA, 2019). These figures are a testament to the difficulties transportation companies face and the low-profit margins in which they operate.
Training and accident prevention
Facility and vehicle maintenance
Weather-related cancellations (loss of business)
Long haul distances

For example, drivers are required to log the hours they drive and they are limited to 10 hours of driving time each day, with two (2) additional grace period hours meant only for (bad weather, traffic, etc). The law is designed to keep drivers and their passengers safe. Be that as it may, there are no laws that tell us when to cancel a trip for bad weather. This is done on a case-by-case basis. Some companies choose to keep their buses running (even during heavy snow) provided the client (tour group) still wants to do. After all, canceling on them even if it’s for their safety could not only cost the company money, but also they could lose a client and tarnish their reputation. However not doing so put’s the clients and their passengers at risk. I will divulge more into this scenario during my final.
