Commercial Bus and Limousine Information
The Office of Passenger Transportation's (OPT) Bus and Limousine Regulatory Unit regulates buses, motor coaches, and limousines, which operate intrastate (within the state of Michigan) for-hire passenger transportation. These vehicles are either classified as limousines with a seating capacity of 15 passengers or less, including the driver, or as buses with a seating capacity 16 passengers or more, including the driver. The Bus and Limousine Regulatory Unit ensures that for-hire passenger carriers must obtain a certificate of authority, meet commercial insurance requirements, submit to yearly vehicle safety inspections, and pay the required fees in order to operate safely.
