Private transportation cannot be available to the public at large. Private motor carriers of passengers (PMCPs) are separated into two groups: business or non-business.
PMCPs for business provide private transportation of
passengers intended for a commercial purpose. For example, PMCPs for business
are companies who use buses to transport their own employees. Commercial
businesses that provide transportation to the general public or charge their
employees a fee for transportation are not business PMCPs.
PMCPs (non-business) provide private transportation of passengers, but not in the furtherance of a commercial enterprise. A PMCPs (non-business) could be a civic organization, scout group, or other organization that purchases or leases a bus for the private transportation of their group.
