We recognise the important role bus service operators play in providing vital transport to local communities.

It is important that these services operate safely and without disruption.

There have been some concerns raised about bus fires. In response, DVSA carried out an investigation.

In the latest Moving On blog post, Ian Bartlett shares the key findings from the bus fires investigation and recommendations for bus operators, drivers and maintenance providers.

It’s important that the lessons learnt from this study are understood – and the recommendations are communicated throughout the industry.

We will continue to work with you, operators, drivers and the Confederation of Passenger Transport to ensure safety on buses.
