Mass Transit Accidents

Transit Companies Are Responsible for Rider Safety

New Jersey Transit, along with any other transportation company whose vehicles enter New Jersey, is responsible for the safety and security of its riders on buses and trains traveling along transit routes. In most cases, this includes providing security and safety precautions at bus stops and loading stations. Despite being heavily regulated, public and private mass transit companies are often negligent and fail to protect the riding public. Every year, hundreds of people are seriously injured in bus crashes and accidents involving loading and unloading of passengers.
