The Kansas Highway Patrol will sponsor a safety/question-and-answer program for those motor carriers who transport passengers at 10 a.m. Wednesday at the KHP's Garden City office, 2222 E. U.S. Highway 50.

The program is designed to give churches operating buses of nine passengers or greater, including the driver, all relevant information on how to comply with federal regulations and state laws.

"Recent bus crashes nationwide has prompted the Patrol to seek opportunities to further safety across Kansas with our partners, FMCSA and KCC," Captain Christopher Turner, commander of the Patrol's Motor Carrier Safety Assistance (MCSAP) Program, said. "Providing information on best practices and delivering programs to entities that transport passengers gives everyone a chance to reach their destination safe and sound."

Representatives from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, Kansas Corporation Commission, and Kansas Highway Patrol will be present to provide the program and answer any questions.
