The rate of car accidents taking place across the United States is growing every year, including collisions involving transit buses. Like other types of accidents, is not possible to entirely avoid bus collisions, but driver error is often involved in the majority of reported crashes.

There are more than 30,000 commercial buses traveling on American roadways each year.
