Greyhound, and other commercial bus companies transport people all over Massachusetts. These private commercial bus companies are open to the public and transport passengers for a fee. These companies are common carriers and are regulated by certain state statutes (federal rules also govern companies that transport passengers across state lines.) Because these companies are considered common carriers they are required to exercise the highest degree of care when transporting passengers. These companies are also required to comply with the commercial busing industry’s safety standards.
Greyhound and other commercial bus crash accidents occur for many reasons. Mechanical problems, driver error or fatigue, dangerous roadway conditions and other motor vehicles are only a few causes. Surprisingly, passenger assault on the bus driver and passenger interference with the bus drivers operation accounts for a good deal of all commercial busing accidents. Commercial busing companies aren’t usually liable for the actions of passengers that lead to accidents. Bus companies may be liable if knew or should have known a particular passenger posed a threat and despite this threat allowed the passenger to board the bus.
