The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has safety regulatory oversight of commercial van operations and for-hire operators of small passenger-carrying vehicles that engage in interstate commerce. Motor carriers are subject to regulatory oversight when their vehicles are used on a highway in interstate commerce to transport passengers if the vehicle is designed or used to transport 9 to 15 passengers (including the driver) for compensation. The specific safety regulations applicable to such operations depends upon the form of the compensation received by the operator for the transportation services provided (i.e., in the form of either direct compensation or indirect compensation). Direct compensation means payment made to the motor carrier by the passengers or the individual acting on behalf of the passengers for the transportation services provided, and not included in a total package charge or other assessment for highway transportation services.
Motor carriers operating 9 to 15 passenger-carrying commercial motor vehicles for direct compensation, regardless of the distance traveled, are subject to the safety standards in part 385 and parts 390 through 396 of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. These carriers are required to register with FMCSA and mark their commercial motor vehicles with the USDOT identification number and the legal name or single trade name of the operator (section 390.21).
Among other requirements, these carriers are also subject to safety fitness procedures and new entrant safety assurance procedures (part 385); accident register recordkeeping (section 390.15); driver qualification and medical examination requirements (part 391); required to maintain and update driver qualification files (section 391.51); required to comply with maximum driving time standards (section 395.5); required to maintain records of duty status (section 395.8) or time records (for drivers covered by the short-haul exemption in section 395.1(e)(1)); and recordkeeping for inspection, repair, and maintenance (part 396). Motor carriers are subject to these same regulations when their vehicle has a gross vehicle weight or gross vehicle weight rating of 10,001 or more pounds and is used on a highway in interstate commerce to transport passengers, even if the vehicle is designed and used to transport 8 or less passengers.
Please note: MCS-150 and OP-series forms cannot be used to initially register with FMCSA. First-time registrants will be required to use the Unified Registration System (URS). For more information about URS, or to register for the first time, click here.
This web page focuses upon the applicability of safety regulations. Commercial van operations and for-hire operators of small passenger-carrying vehicles that engage in interstate commerce may also be subject to Federal operating authority and financial responsibility requirements. For an overview of such requirements, refer to the brochure titled \"Overview of Federal Requirements, Interstate 9 to 15 Passenger Vehicles\".
Bus drivers need to consider passenger safety during loading and unloading. Always ensure your passengers are safely on the bus before closing the door(s) and pulling away. Allow passengers enough time to sit down or brace themselves before departing. Starting and stopping should be as smooth as possible to avoid rider injury.
When customers rent a 15-passenger van from our competitors, often times you will be charged an additional fee to remove the rear seat. At Empire, we never charge any type of a seat removal fee, whatsoever.
This interpretive rule adds appendices to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations (FMCSRs) to explain existing statutes and regulations FMCSA administers related to: the applicability of the FMCSRs, including the financial responsibility regulations, to motor carriers of passengers operating in interstate commerce, including limitations on such applicability based on characteristics of the vehicle operated or the scope of operations conducted; and the applicability of commercial operating authority registration based on the Agency's jurisdiction over motor carriers of passengers, regardless of vehicle characteristics, when operating for-hire in interstate commerce. Under certain conditions, motor carriers performing intrastate movements of passengers may still be operating in interstate commerce and, unless otherwise exempt, are subject to applicable FMCSA statutory and regulatory requirements. FMCSA wants motor carriers of passengers and the public to be aware of the applicable regulations and requirements.
The MCSA restated Federal safety jurisdiction in terms of commercial motor vehicles (CMVs) operating in interstate commerce but did not repeal the 1935 Act. The MCSA, as amended, defines a commercial motor vehicle in 49 U.S.C. 31132(1) as a self-propelled or towed vehicle used on highways in interstate commerce to transport passengers or property, if the vehicle meets one or more of the following 4 criteria, i.e., (1) has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) or gross vehicle weight (GVW) of at least 10,001 pounds, whichever is greater; (2) is designed or used to transport more than 8 passengers (including the driver) for compensation; (3) is designed or used to transport more than 15 passengers (including the driver) but is not used to transport passengers for compensation; or (4) is used in transporting material found by the Secretary of Transportation to be hazardous under 49 U.S.C. 5103 and transported in a quantity requiring placarding under the placarding regulations prescribed under section 5103. This definition expanded Federal jurisdiction for the first time to include private motor carriers of passengers.
A second CMV definition, based on the statutory definition in the Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1986 (CMVSA) codified at 49 U.S.C. 31301(4), governs the commercial driver's license (CDL) program and the corresponding drug and alcohol testing requirements (49 CFR parts 383 and 382, respectively), which apply to CMV operations both in interstate and intrastate commerce. For the purposes of determining which passenger carrier operations require a CDL, the jurisdiction conferring commercial motor vehicle definition in parts 383 and 382 includes any motor vehicle that has a GVWR or GVW of 26,001 pounds or more and is used to transport passengers, regardless of the number of passengers that the vehicle is designed to or actually does transport. This commercial motor vehicle definition also includes any vehicle designed or used to transport 16 or more passengers, including the driver, and any vehicle used to transport certain hazardous materials.
There are specific statutory exemptions and regulatory exceptions applicable to part or all of FMCSA's jurisdiction. Most exemptions from FMCSA's commercial authority are codified in 49 U.S.C. 13506. Some of these exemptions applicable to passenger carrier operations are discussed in detail in below. The exemptions or exceptions from FMCSA's safety regulations are codified primarily in 49 CFR 390.3 and 390.3T. Specific examples of applicability questions FMCSA frequently receives are presented in question and answer format. The Agency's analytical framework is straightforward: (1) does the operation generally fall within FMCSA's jurisdiction, and, (2) if so, does any statutory or regulatory exemption or exception limit the applicability of the FMCSRs
In 1964, the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) reaffirmed its longstanding position that the exemption for incidental-to-air transportation did not require passengers to hold a through ticket when it addressed the following question:
For example, reserving a seat via the internet, with an advanced guarantee obligating the passenger to take the service and the motor carrier to provide the service, in a limousine for transportation to or from an airport about the same time of booking an interstate flight that will occur multiple weeks in the future would demonstrate a fixed and persisting intent to travel in interstate commerce, placing the limousine segment of the trip in the stream of interstate commerce. On the other hand, deciding on the day of a trip to take a taxicab to or from the airport before or after the flight would not involve prearrangement and would not amount to interstate commerce. In any case, evidence of a traveler's intent is normally based on documentation, not assumptions. 59ce067264
