Public transportation providers are often referred to as "common carriers" under the law, which means that they are in the business of transporting members of the public and are open to the general public. Such common carriers may include city- and state-operated buses, taxis, trains, airplanes, ferries and even ski lifts. Common Carriers in California are held to a higher degree of responsibility than ordinary motor vehicle drivers.
Bus Accidents Occur On Our Freeways And Interstates
Every kind of multiple-passenger vehicle is on our freeway system, twenty-four hours a day. Accidents may involve shuttle buses, city buses, school buses, long-distance coaches, regular length and articulated buses. Drivers are perched high above traffic, but they don't see what is behind them. Accidents can be mild, or they can be very brutal, ending in catastrophic injuries or death.

City Buses and Other Carriers Have Legal Responsibilities
California's Civil Code §2100 states that common carriers "must use the utmost care and diligence for [passengers'] safe carriage, must provide everything necessary for that purpose, and must exercise to that end a reasonable degree of skill." When bus drivers and bus companies or any other common carriers fail to comply with such laws, passengers can suffer severe injuries or even wrongful death.
