ystematic maintenance of equipment is an essential element of our transport operation. Part 396 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations requires motor carriers to ‘inspect, repair, and maintain all motor vehicles’ under their control. Even if there were no federal regulations in place, however, it makes excellent business sense to have an organized maintenance program in operation. At Cowtown Bus Charters, Inc., it is our policy to keep all company transportation equipment well maintained and in safe and efficient operating conditions at all times.
It is further the policy of Cowtown Bus Charters, Inc. to use the ‘preventive maintenance’ approach with our transport equipment. The specifics of that approach will be detailed in the procedures to follow.
