Above all else—at Astro Travel and Tours—our top priority is your safety. This is evidenced by the top ratings we consistently achieve with the United States Department of Defense traffic management command, Transportation Safety Exchange and other regulating agencies such as the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) https://ai.fmcsa.dot.gov/SMS/Carrier/659912/Overview.aspx
It takes a well-oiled team to ensure that every safety system is in place and working. This results in highly trained and prudent drivers operating the safest motorcoaches on the road. A few of the components that work together include:
Ongoing training - It’s critical that our drivers achieve and keep their driving skills honed. In addition, being knowledgeable about the most current safety information as well as the safety features and procedures is paramount. That is why our drivers receive training continuously.
Maintenance – At Astro Tours and Travel, we follow a regularly scheduled maintenance program. Our maintenance staff ensures that the equipment is working properly and makes any necessary repairs.
Anticipating the unexpected – Although our safety record is impeccable there is always the potential for an unexpected event to occur. Astro’s 24 hour roadside assistance and dispatch is available for just such occurrences.
