There are many advantages to taking a Coast Mountain bus to downtown Vancouver. It saves money on gas and parking, provides ample time for relaxation, and offers you the opportunity to see the downtown area without worrying about traffic. One of the most important advantages of bus travel, however, is safety.

Bus travel is known for being a safe form of travel—much safer than traveling in a car. Not only do buses reduce the number of cars available on the road to create accidents, they have built-in safety features to help them avoid accidents and to reduce the severity of injuries that do occur as the result of a crash including:

Bus Safety Features

  • Large size and weight which decreases crush damage
  • Flashing red lights and bright colors to increases visibility
  • Reinforced sides limit side impact damage
  • Elevated seating  that evenly disperses collision impact
  • Cross-view mirrors that limit blind spots
  • Trained drivers  who have specific knowledge on bus safety

Buses have strong outer shells, which make them extremely safe. Although cars and SUVs have additional safety features inside the vehicle, such as seat belts and air bags, the frame is inherently weak when compared to that of a bus.
