What you need to know about amusement park shuttle buses:
Most people don't realize that the buses that shuttle them around at amusement parks, or take them out to their vehicles, or even pick them up from their hotels, aren't always owned by the amusement park. They're often an independent company. So that raises some questions. Who is responsible if you're injured by that shuttle bus? That's a complex issue. It depends on some situational specifics that we don't have time to go into for the purposes of this article. Let's look at a couple examples.
If Jane is sitting on a bench out in front of her hotel waiting on the Marriott shuttle bus to take her to Six Flags and the bus runs up onto the curb, strikes Jane injuring her. That is likely the fault of the bus driver/the company that owns the bus. It's not the fault of Six Flags.
You're riding on a shuttle bus out to your car after finishing a long day at Sea World. The shuttle is emblazoned all over it's exterior with Sea World advertisements and a themed wrap. Regardless of who literally owns the vehicle, for all intents and purposes, that shuttle bus is doing business as Sea World. So if you're injured in an accident in that shuttle, Sea World can be held responsible.[iparticle id=1]
