GREEN BAY, Wis., March 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lamers Bus Lines is proud to announce that it has become TSX Approved as a safer motor carrier, having successfully completed the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR). Transportation Safety Exchange (TSX) is the ground transportation industry's only independent rating organization that inspects, monitors and reports the safety performance of motor carriers.
"We are proud to earn this distinction, because it demonstrates that we have implemented the highest standards of safety," said Allen Lamers, President of Lamers Bus Lines. "Earlier this year, we were awarded the IMG Safety Award and now with the TSX approval, we are proving just how committed we are to providing safe and comfortable transportation to everyone we serve. With our TSX approval, we can be recognized for achieving and maintaining the most stringent safety standards in the industry."
"Being TSX Approved demonstrates a motor carrier's dedication to better safety standards," said TSX President Patrick Labriola. "In today's crowded marketplace, it is important for customers to have a way to identify the safer carriers on the road. With TSX Approval, carriers demonstrate that they are making safety a top priority."
Passenger trip organizers and sponsors all bear responsibility and potential risk for operator performance and safety. They must demonstrate that they have used the highest standard of care possible in selecting a motor carrier. As passenger trip organizers and sponsors perform their due diligence, TSX Approval will help them identify their safest options.
"We know that our customers deserve the safest transportation possible and are committed to maintaining our safety focus. We expect that our customers will select a motor carrier that they can easily determine to be safer by having been TSX Approved," says Lamers.
