Safety & Environmental Impact
How Safe are Divine Charter Buses?
At Divine Charter, safety is our number 1 priority. Our vehicles comply with federal standards and our drivers are fully DOT (Department of Transportation) compliant.
We are proud of our high ranked safety record. Our drivers and mechanics are continually striving for the very best, adding to their expertise through continuing education.
Our drivers all have commercial drivers licenses and are highly trained not just in driver safety, but in the handling of a commercial motor vehicle in inclement weather and compromised driving conditions. They all have impeccable driving records and have passed a DOT physical.
Did you know...?
A charter bus is 50 times safer than a car. And twice as safe as flying!
Regular Safety Inspections
In compliance with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Divine Charter is required to maintain the fleet of vehicles at all times. Drivers are required to document the safe and proper condition of the vehicle, have necessary safety features, and certain emergency parts and accessories on board.
Repairs are taken care of immediately and documented for the FMCSA. Every charter bus also requires an annual inspection that must be performed by qualified inspectors that fully understand the FMCSA standards.
When you take a bus or shuttle from Divine Charter, you are significantly reducing your carbon footprint. According to the American Bus Association, motorcoaches are the greenest travel option because “On average, motorcoaches use the least amount of energy and produce the lowest carbon dioxide emissions per passenger mile of any of the transportation modes analyzed, including van pool, heavy rail, commuter rail, light rail, trolley, air travel and more.”
That means that from a carbon perspective, motorcoaches are among your lowest-emission options, especially on shorter (less than 500-mile) trips.
- Improved air quality
