A long and strong tradition in road safety

With more vehicles on the road and a faster tempo of traffic there is a greater risk of accidents. As one of the world's biggest manufacturers of large buses and coaches, with a long, strong tradition in road safety, Volvo has an important role to play in making traffic environments safer. Our primary responsibility is ensuring that our products maintain a high level of safety for drivers, guides and passengers. But a bus or coach in traffic is part of a bigger picture.

That's why we also try to improve safety for other road users, both through our product development and by sharing knowledge that will help make safer roads, safer drivers and safer bus stops.

The cornerstones of Volvo Buses' work on safety consist of Active, or Preventive Safety to avoid accidents, plus Passive, or Protective Safety to reduce injuries and Security which includes personal and fire safety.
