Transportation Law


Our firm is highly specialized in the areas of State and Federal regulation of buses, vans and limousines. We represent a large number of transportation companies that are located in New Jersey and New York, and many others that are located throughout the United States. Although we are limited to representing transportation companies with regard to their intrastate operations and regulation in New Jersey and New York, we are also able to represent transportation companies anywhere in the United States with regard to Federal Regulation.

We can obtain Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (formerly ICC) and NJMVC (NJ Motor Vehicle Commission) and NYSDOT (NY State Department of Transportation) Certificates for charter, regular route, contract and casino operations, obtain USDOT (US Department of Transportation) Registrations, prepare equipment leases, and handle all of your regulatory matters.

Our firm has as much practical experience as legal experience with regard to the operation of bus companies. Jerry Casser was involved in the operation of a large bus company with charter, transit and sightseeing operations through his family’s business interests before he began practicing law and as a result, has a substantial understanding of the day to day operations of a bus company which he has put to use in his law practice.

In the course of our law practice, we have represented large, mid-size and small bus operators, from companies the size of Coach USA and Greyhound to small start up bus companies. We represent charter and transit operators, commuter van operators, school bus companies, limousine operators and private companies that offer shuttle operations for their employees. We have obtained approval for intrastate bus routes for our clients throughout New Jersey and New York, and for interstate bus routes throughout the United States. We have handled transportation issues for bus companies in Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and California.

Many of our out-of-state clients use our firm for matters that arise when their transportation operations take them into New Jersey. The issues could involve bus accidents (we investigate and assist in the recovery of property damage), NJ tax issues, Atlantic City Casino matters, Municipal Court appearances for traffic violations, and leases for terminal and office locations in New Jersey, etc. We obtain approval for Bus Stops in  New York City for out of state companies.

Our firm is a member of the United Motorcoach Association, the American Bus Association and BANY  (Bus Association of NY). Jerry Casser has served as Legal Counsel to the Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association for 25 years and often speaks on transportation matters before bus associations and other transportation organizations.
