Abstract:

A Committee of 12 individuals with expertise in a number of areas relevant to the questions raised by this study was formed to evaluate the claims and counterclaims. Because there was little research directly applicable to these questions, the Committee had to collect and analyze the necessary information. Transportation Research Board (TRB) staff visited several bus companies, including some that allow their drivers to use CB radios. Staff members, unidentified to drivers, also rode a number of buses to gain firsthand experience with how CB radios are used by bus drivers who work for companies that allow them.
