Our Safety Rating & Maintenance Crew

Our commitment to your group's safety is one reason we volunteer to be the first fleet inspected by the Ohio State Patrol every year. The Ohio State Patrol Motor Carrier Enforcement Unit’s primary function is to ensure the safe operation of commercial motor vehicles within the State of Ohio. This goal is achieved through education and enforcement of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and PUCO Safety Rules. Our founder served on the original committee of State Patrol, state officials and industry leaders to set up the Ohio State safety inspection standards. These standards continue to insure the safety of the Ohio motor coach industry.

S&S Coach also retains one of the best safety ratings in the nation from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (division of the U.S. Department of Transportation.)

S&S Coach has a written maintenance program which meets or exceeds all regulatory and manufacturer preventative maintenance standards. We have our own full-service garage and our head mechanic has over 28 years experience.

Detailed Company Snapshot Safety Data from the FMCSA

On March 12 and March 21, 2014, Motor Carrier Enforcement Inspectors for the Ohio Highway Patrol inspected each of S&S Coach’s motor coaches at the company garage located in Lexington, Ohio. The inspectors found the coaches to be in sound operating condition and S&S Coach received its annual safety inspection decals for each motorcoach.

Did you know?

Each bus in Ohio is inspected by the Patrol once per year, and a decal is placed on the vehicle when it passes inspection. These vehicles include charter busses, airport shuttle busses, and any other bus that might be used in commerce. These inspections are very similar to the annual state inspections conducted on school busses within the state. This program began several decades ago when the Ohio Bus Owners Association approached the Patrol to start an inspection program. Like in the commercial trucking industry, good carriers welcome the inspection program because it helps to keep unsafe carriers off the road.
