This almanac outlines the obligations and duties owed to passengers by all types of common carriers, including airlines, trains, cruise ships, and buses. The Federal laws that regulate interstate common carriers and the state laws that regulate intrastate common carriers are explored; the statute of limitations associated with each is also provided.
