Transportation Oversight Division

The Transportation Oversight Division regulates the rates and practices of common carriers used to transport passengers and property, including trucks, railways, buses, household moving companies and towing companies. In addition, we license all intrastate Massachusetts-based motor bus companies. The most critical function of the Division is public safety.
