Approved Military Bus Carrier

Richfield Bus Company has established security systems and transport operations that pass specific approval procedures to carry U.S. Military personnel and troops. As a military-approved carrier, we meet very rigorous requirements. Not only does this include the Defense Management Office’s DoD Bus Agreement #5 rules, it also includes the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s provisions laid out in the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSR). Both of these regulate the standards that bus and motorcoach carriers meet with the main goals of reducing accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Our motorcoaches fully adhere to federal and military safety standards, in addition to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance (CVSA) and state guidelines. For troop and military personnel with specialty equipment and exact schedules, Richfield Bus Company offers the necessary transportation services.

FMCSR and DoD Bus Agreement #5

The main components of the FMCSR are Compliance, Safety, and Accountability (CSA). CSA is a data-driven system of enforcing safety practices that reduce crashes that cause vehicle damage, pose dangers to public safety, and harm passengers and drivers. The CSA program monitors and oversees our safety performance, including alcohol and drug testing, hours of service, vehicle maintenance, ADA compliance, handling of hazardous materials, and more. Through the FMCSR CSA program, we provide detailed reports of our recorded travel, drivers, service hours, compliance, and more.
