Greyhound Lines Agrees to Pay Civil Penalty to Resolve Allegations in Violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act

Greyhound Lines has agreed to pay $300,000 to certain bus passengers and a $75,000 civil penalty to resolve allegations that it repeatedly violated the Americans with Disabilities Act. Under the terms of a consent decree filed in Delaware, the company also will implement several reforms, including hiring an ADA compliance manager. The consent decree resolves claims that Greyhound failed to provide proper services to disabled passengers, including failing to maintain features such as lifts on its buses and to assist passengers in boarding and exiting buses. Greyhound has agreed to compensate individuals who experienced barriers based on disabilities during the three years prior to this filing.

Greyhound announced unaudited earnings results for the six months ended 30 September 2015. For the period, the company reported revenue of £312.4 million against £314.0 million a year ago. Operating profit was £25.8 million against £29.9 million a year ago. Adjusted operating profit was £25.8 million against £29.9 million a year ago. EBITDA was £76.8 million against £74.5 million a year ago. Adjusted operating profit was £2.0 million against £4.5 million a year ago. The like-for-like revenue decreased reflecting the adverse impact on customer demand experienced across the intercity coach industry since fuel prices fell sharply in the third quarter of the prior financial year.

Greyhound Lines, Inc. Faces Wrongful Death Lawsuit in 2008 Colusa Crash

A state appeal court has reversed a Sacramento Superior Court judge's grant of summary judgment in favor of Greyhound Lines, Inc., in a wrongful death and personal injury lawsuit brought on behalf of those who perished and were injured in a horrific 2008 crash near Williams of a bus traveling from Sacramento to a casino in rural Colusa County. The plaintiffs allege safety defects in the motor coach, which had been built to Greyhound's specifications but had gone through at least two incarnations since Greyhound had relinquished control of it. At the time of the accident, which killed 11 people and injured dozens more, it was owned by Daniel Cobb. Cobb was also killed in the accident. A three-justice panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal found fatal flaws in Greyhound's motion for summary judgment, on which Sacramento Superior Court Judge David I. Brown based the February 2013 ruling that sank the case. Specifically, the justices said, Greyhound did not address all the claims in the plaintiffs' complaint. The panel's decision gives new life to the lawsuit. The matter back to Brown with directions to vacate his ruling in Greyhound's favor and issue a new order denying the company's motion for summary judgment on plaintiffs' claims of negligence, strict liability, loss of consortium, wrongful death, and survival. The panel further directed that the new order should grant Greyhound's request to be relieved of breach-of-warranty claims.
