First Class Safety & Maintenance

#1 First Class Safety Rating

At M&L Transit, we are proud of our First Class Safety program. See how we measure up against other passenger carriers in Massachusetts by following the link below to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s website.


Our diverse fleet is comprised of new vehicles; we never buy used buses. New vehicles are clean, reliable, and comfortable, and they are equipped with the latest technology as well. With an on-site garage and full-time technicians, we take your First Class Safety seriously. If our vehicles don’t meet the highest safety compliance standards, they don’t go out on the road. Period.

Maintenance Program

Our maintenance program process includes two daily pre-trip inspections of the primary route vehicles by the operators. This enables us to immediately identify and address any issues.


We use Keller’s Maintenance Manager® for our vehicle maintenance program, and output daily Vehicle Inspection Reports (VIRs). Daily information is captured from VIRs and individual management reports are generated for each vehicle. These reports display mileage, time in service, malfunctions, and other operational data. The fleet manager analyzes these reports, prioritizes and reviews them for any safety-related failures, and then schedules the work accordingly.


If a vehicle has a safety-related malfunction, it is placed out of service until it has been inspected by a technician. Every two months or 5,000 miles (whichever comes first), vehicles are scheduled for a Preventive Maintenance (PM) inspection and any necessary repairs.


All work performed is documented and entered in our database when it is completed. At any time, a vehicle history can be accessed by a technician in order to examine any trends which could lead to an out-of-service issue. This program is approved by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. In addition, all of our buses fall under the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance Program and are inspected by the Department of Public Utilities randomly once per month.
