TALLAHASSEE, Fla., March 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Astro Travel and Tours, Inc. is proud to announce that it has become TSX Approved as a safer motor carrier, having successfully completed the Transportation Safety Exchange Comprehensive Review (TSX-CR).  Transportation Safety Exchange (TSX) is the ground transportation industry's only independent rating organization that inspects, monitors and reports the safety performance of motor carriers. 

"We are thrilled to earn this distinction, because it demonstrates that we have implemented the highest standards of safety," said Matt Brown, Manager of Astro Travel.  "We take our commitment to safety measures very seriously, and now with TSX Approval, we can be recognized for achieving and maintaining the most stringent safety standards."

"Being TSX Approved demonstrates a motor carrier's dedication to better safety standards," said TSX President Patrick Labriola.  "In today's crowded marketplace, it is important for customers to have a way to identify the safer carriers on the road.  With TSX Approval, carriers demonstrate that they are making safety a top priority."

Passenger trip organizers and sponsors all bear responsibility and potential risk for operator performance and safety.  They must demonstrate that they have used the highest standard of care possible in selecting a motor carrier.  As passenger trip organizers and sponsors perform their due diligence, TSX Approval will help them identify their safest options.

"We are confident that this important differentiator of safety will result in more business for us.  We expect that our customers will select a motor carrier that they can easily determine to be safer by having been TSX Approved," says Matt Brown.
