Although public transportation such as buses provide convenient and reliable ways to travel for work or pleasure, they do not contain the same level of safety features as smaller vehicles. In some cases, bus companies fail to properly train their drivers or may use inexperienced drivers who find it challenging to safely operate a large vehicle like a bus. Passengers may sustain personal injuries or even fatalities while in a bus accident.
