From: Metro:

After a two-week, comprehensive U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) audit, Trans-Bridge Lines Inc. received the highest DOT rating granted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration ensuring compliance with federal regulations.

Driver qualifications, safety operations, CDL requirements, maintenance records, physical motorcoach inspections, by Pa. State Police inspectors, were among the components audited.

The company recently added six 2017 Motor Coach Industries (MCI) J4500 buses to its fleet during the first week of January.

Within the next 10 months, Trans-Bridge will replace 13 additional buses, which revitalizes 31% of their fleet this year alone while reducing their average fleet age from 5 years to 4 years.
