The policies governing bus passenger movements are referenced in Chapter 104, Busses, of the Defense Transportation Regulation, Part 1, Passenger Movements

Military Bus Program Fact Sheet

ATTENTION: The new DoD Bus Agreement, which outlines Carrier requirements for program participation, is expected to be released in early 2020.  As part of the new Agreement, carriers will be required to register for the U.S. Transportation Command's Groups Operational Passenger System (GOPAX). Current DoD-approved carriers may register for GOPAX access now, ahead of the release of the new Bus Agreement. 

Until the new Bus Agreement is released, the Military Bus Program is not accepting new applicants unless there is a compelling need requested by the Transportation Officer (TO).





Military Bus Program

The Military Bus Program ensures that commercial bus, van and limousine companies offering charter service provide safe vehicles that consistently meet DoD standards of service. Over 400 carriers participate in the program, offering ground transportation to individual and group DoD passengers, including military movement solicitations and recruit travel.

DTMO manages the program through an agreement with carriers that establishes the specific terms, conditions and standards that must be met when providing transportation for DoD passengers. Transportation Coordinators and individuals arranging DoD-sponsored passenger travel must use the DoD approved carrier list to arrange for transportation within their routing authority or have the option of using the Groups Operational Passenger System (GOPAX).
