Alberta Transportation monitors the safety and compliance of commercial bus and truck carriers. The goal is to ensure commercial vehicles on Alberta roadways are operating safely. If a carrier does not follow safety laws, the government may intervene with their operations to reduce the risk the carrier poses to the public.
Carrier Services follows guidelines in the Intervention and Discipline Policy to ensure that carriers demonstrating non-compliance are approached in a consistent, fair, and objective manner. This policy was updated in 2018 to enhance processes, reporting systems, and technologies to provide better oversight and timely interactions between Alberta Transportation and commercial carriers.
A general overview of the carrier intervention process is shown below:
