Is the law regarding bus accidents like that for passenger vehicles?

The responsibility imposed upon busing companies is very different than that posed on ordinary drivers.

 A busing company is a “common carrier.” The law poses the highest duty of care on common carriers while an ordinary driver is only expected to exercise reasonable care. The rationale for this special heightened duty is that a transportation company has exclusive control over safety and maintenance issues, so passengers cannot really do anything to protect themselves. Bus passengers effectively entrust their safety to the busing company.
