Florida is a large state with many forms of public and private transportation. People across the various Florida counties ride buses daily as their main means of transportation. Private buses also operate within the state. Buses are known as “common carriers”. The law provides that “common carriers” must carry passengers safely. They must do all that a reasonably careful person can do under the circumstances to avoid harm to passengers.
