Starr Successfully Completes the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review; Approved to Join Elite Group of Safer Motor Carriers
TRENTON, N.J., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Starr Bus Charter & Tours (Starr) is proud to announce that it has become TSX Approved, having successfully completed the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR), the most comprehensive safety review in the industry. 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 truly honored to earn this distinction, because it demonstrates that we have implemented the highest standards of safety," said Alan Glickman, Chief Executive Officer of Starr. "We take our commitment to safety measures very seriously, and now with TSX approval, we can be recognized for achieving and maintaining the most stringent safety standards. As a company, we have committed ourselves to safety and it is very rewarding to be recognized for that commitment."
"It's very impressive that Starr is the 17th member of the International Motor Coach Group (IMG) to become TSX Approved. A TSX approval demonstrates a motor carrier's dedication to better safety standards," said Patrick Labriola, President of Transportation Safety Exchange. "In today's crowded marketplace, it is important for customers to have a way to identify the safer carriers on the road. Starr and other IMG carriers are making safety a top priority and can expect to gain market share as a result."
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 are confident that this important differentiator of safety will result in more business for us. We expect that our customers will select a motor carrier that they can easily determine to be safer by having been TSX Approved," said Mr. Glickman.
