Safety Is Top Priority at A1 Bus Ltd.

Safety is a top priority at A1 Bus Ltd.  We do everything we can to ensure a safe ride to and from your event.  Our vehicles are fully compliant with everything required by Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) of British Columbia. We work closely with their officers to ensure constant compliance and that nothing is ever overlooked.

Our buses are inspected a minimum of two times per year by a government-approved inspection facility and many of the buses are voluntarily inspected a third time by a CVSE Senior Area Vehicle Inspector to gain additional school bus certification.

Included inside all of our buses are the following:

  • a copy of our current insurance (with not less than $10 million liability )

  • a copy of our 6 month MVI Inspection Report

  • a copy of our National Safety Code certificate

  • a copy of our Passenger Transportation license

  • a copy of our pre-trip checklist to aid the driver in doing their safety pre-trip

We do not usually provide these documents ahead of time (via email) due to the time it takes to get them all together and scan them; however if your organization requires them in advance, we will try our best to accommodate.

A1 Bus is committed to maintaining a safe fleet. If you ever have recommendations for us on how to improve OR witness a bus being driven in an unsafe manner, please note the unit number and call our office at 250-550-4272 so we can address it.
