What Causes Community Transit Bus Accidents?
These bus drivers go through intensive training. They also go through safety programs. However, driver errors and poor vehicle maintenance still cause accidents.
Additionally, drivers tire out from long shifts. Drunk drivers also cause accidents. Drivers need to keep buses on time too. Even through heavy traffic as well. This can lead to hasty decisions. This also causes collisions. In fact, buses often rear-end other vehicles.
Mechanical Problems & Poor Vehicle Maintenance
Also, without proper maintenance, there are mechanical issues. Companies perform surveys when these issues happen. These surveys review safety records and maintenance history. They often highlight safety violations.
Community Transit Subcontracting
This public transportation system services 53 routes in the area. These routes are in Snohomish County. They are also in downtown Seattle. There are routes at the University of Washington as well. Each city within the county is part of the service area. However, Everett is not. Also, other regional transportation providers subcontract their services.
The bus system can be efficient and cheap. However, there is a trade off. On public buses you rely on public servants for your safety.
