Successful Practices and Training Initiatives to Reduce Bus Accidents and Incidents at Transit Agencies

The purpose of this study is to document successful practices and training initiatives, including bus operator training and retraining programs, that have been effective in reducing accidents and incidents.  Recognizing that safety does not occur in a vacuum and mitigation measures are not strictly confined to the training of bus operators, the study also focuses on other system approaches that have been implemented to address safety hazards.  These approaches include various technology applications, infrastructure modifications, and other programs and initiatives, such as driver incentive programs, and close call/near miss reporting, as examples.
