In addition, the United States around the bus will have plainclothes police conduct random inspections, to ensure the bus system of a regional security.

Take the bus in the United States have deep feelings, the bus driver to the disabled care. Each driver will be very active and enthusiastic help wheelchair car, and help fix the wheelchair, will be asked in advance to get off the station, auxiliary wheelchair off.
