Kentucky is a major hub for passenger bus transportation. Whether it is children taking a school bus, public bus riders, or passengers on an interstate bus trip, thousands of people in Kentucky rely on bus transportation each and every day.
Major transportation providers such as Megabus, Greyhound, CTA, PACE and others carry thousands of people throughout the state each day. When someone gets onto a bus, he or she trusts that the driver is properly licensed, well-rested and ready to operate the bus in the safest way possible to protect the safety of all passengers. A bus passenger also trusts that the vehicle has been properly inspected and designed, and that all parts of the bus are fully operational. However, bus accidents do occur, and oftentimes it is the result of negligence on the part of the bus driver, bus company or bus manufacturer. When passengers are seriously injured in an Illinois bus accident, they may be able to take action to hold any and all wrongdoers accountable.
