the process and streamline the pre-arranged passenger
A web-based user account portal was introduced and rolled
out over the course of 2016/2017, with full implementation
on April 1, 2017. The process has since allowed Pearson and
stakeholders to expedite pre-arranged passenger pick-ups.
As with any change, the transition wasn't devoid of hiccups;
however, the ultimate goal will see less frustration, delays and
congestion at the airport.

Vulnerable Road Users
The Government of Canada is working closely with
stakeholders involved in road transportation, including
OMCA and Motor Coach Canada, to address issues
involving the safe interaction of vehicles and vulnerable
road users - pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles. Motor
Coach Canada is participating in a consultative forum with
other stakeholders to provide insight, guidance and expertise
on methods, strategies and initiatives that can address
safe integration and increase accident prevention between
vulnerable road users and other vehicles.

Daily Vehicle Inspection Reports;
Following a Repair
requirements indicate if
a driver reports defects
on a prior day's vehicle
inspection report, the
driver who operates the
vehicle the next day
(following repairs) must sign the report as well, to confirm that
repairs were made.
For daily inspection reports with defects, the following
three signatures are required on the report:
1. The initial driver who did the inspection and found
2. The repair person or mechanic who did the repairs;
3. The subsequent driver who drove the vehicle the following
day (following repairs), confirming the repairs were made.
Please note, while U.S. forms may provide all three
signature lines, forms in Canada may not. However, as
there is reciprocity in place between the two countries,
the Canadian forms are accepted. Regardless, the
driver who operates the vehicle following repairs
is still required to sign the form; failure to do so
could result in a violation.
