Safety always comes first at Volvo Buses. It’s a core value and has been our guiding star since 1927. Already back then Volvo’s founders stated that “Safety is and must be the basic principle in all design work”. Today, almost 90 years later, we stand by this with our vision: zero accidents with Volvo Group products.

A responsibility in society

For us, safety is so much more than just developing innovative safety solutions in our products. We also have a responsibility in society and an important role to play when it comes to making road traffic safer. And we know we can make a difference. Volvo Group is one of the world’s largest companies in terms of safety research for commercial vehicles.

For people, by people

For people, by people

Volvo Group’s vision for the future is to become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions. Safety plays a key role, because we believe no transport solution can be ultimately successful unless it is safe. We strive every day to get closer to this vision, and are proud to offer passengers and drivers worldwide comfortable bus transport with an extremely high level of safety. The renowned Volvo safety.
