Safety & Training
When you travel by charter bus or motor coach, safety is always a top priority. Whether you’re planning a vacation, group travel, a business outing, or airport transportation, you want to make sure you get there safely. WNC Travels is proud to have one of the best safety ratings in the United States from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which oversees charter bus and motor coach travel. We are also a proud member of the Eastern Consultants For School Safety.
At WNC Travels, safety is our utmost concern. Safe drivers don’t happen by chance, so only the best drivers with excellent driving records and qualifications are even considered for a position with WNC Travels. In addition to an excellent driving record, our drivers go through an extensive pre-employment drug screening, previous employment and background check, and have a minimum of 3 years of commercial driving experience. We train them with a rigorous training program including one of the most extensive behind the wheel training programs in the industry. In addition, all of our drivers are trained and certified in CPR and basic first aid, to ensure they can handle any travel related emergency.
WNC Travels has a safety board that consistently reviews all of our drivers, and holds a quarterly safety meeting that all drivers are required to attend. In addition, our safety board also stays up to date on all Federal and State regulations to ensure continued compliance.
