The past several months, however, have seen a number of tragic crashes around the United States that involve motorcoaches and buses. The U.S. Department of Transportation, through FMCSA, is convening a series of public meetings across the country as well as a national Motorcoach Safety Summit (National Summit), to exchange information and ideas on the best possible approaches to reduce the number of motorcoach crashes, injuries, and fatalities and raise passenger awareness. These meetings and the National Summit will bring together partners and stakeholders from all sides of the motorcoach community, including senior transportation officials, elected officials, safety advocates, law enforcement representatives, private sector representatives, academics, ticket brokers, and passengers to address a range of issues related to reducing crashes, injuries, and fatalities through enforcement, public awareness, and education. They will be open and interactive and FMCSA hopes that they will foster informative dialogue and innovative ideas and approaches. FMCSA will host the National Summit in Washington, DC on September 23, 2011. Leading up to the Summit, FMCSA will hold Regional Roundtables on August 3rd in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX, on August 4th in New York City, NY, on August 5th in Columbus, OH, and on August 8th in Los Angeles/ Anaheim, CA. These locations represent corridors with high levels of motorcoach transportation and safety concerns. These Regional Roundtable discussions will engage participants from all sides of the motorcoach communities they represent, including state and local organizations (i.e., law enforcement, industry, advocates, consumer groups) and the public. All information gathered will provide the framework for the National Summit. Goals of the National Summit include: identifying challenges, policy solutions, educational strategies, and best practices to enhance the culture of safety for the future of motorcoach transportation. The U.S. Department of Transportation is committed to providing equal access to this National Summit. Based on limited seating and to accommodate the strong interest outside the Washington area, the National Summit will be available live by a Web cast that will comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended and members of the public will be given the opportunity to submit questions or comments online. The Department has also created a Web site to provide information and updates on the National Summit and Regional VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:17 Jul 28, 2011 Jkt 223001 Roundtables as more details become available: http://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/ motorcoach/2011.
