Congress will be considering another economic relief plan, and it is imperative that they not forget the bus again! We are there during hurricanes to take people out of harm’s way. We connect rural towns to city centers. We help workers get to their job. We carry U.S. servicemen and women to and from deployments. We are there to take groups to events, rallies and concerts. We take kids to school and on field trips. We take families, friends and groups to see all of America’s amazing sites. Our industry literally moves America.
You are an essential part of the America’s transportation network. You are the connector in a multi-modal society. Our industry completes nearly 600 million passenger trips annually, nearly as many as the domestic airline trips. We bring $237 billion to the economy. America cannot bounce back from this pandemic without buses.
Help us educate Congress on what life would look like if our industry fails. We are TOO IMPORTANT to fail.
ABA, in partnership with The Bus Network, has launched a new website: BusesMoveAmerica.com to help you contact Congressional leaders and your legislators to tell them don’t miss our bus.
Please visit www.busesmoveamerica.com often and send an email to our Congressional leader of the day. We also have a template and contact information for your legislators for you to flood their in boxes as well.

Do Gooder Alert: The Thielen Coaches team from Redwood Falls, Minn., is using their school buses to deliver 800-900 meals per day to students in their district. Students get a bag with noon lunch and breakfast the next morning. The team sets up at 10 different locations in the city for students to come get their meals. They also have four small vehicles doing home delivery for those not able to get to the sites. They have been doing this now for 14 days now and will most likely continue to the end of the school year. According to Rick Thielen, their drivers have delivered more than 13,000 meals in the last two weeks and they can see the impact it has on those families. It gives a real warm feeling of accomplishment in their driver’s hearts. Great work Rick and team!
