Rep. John Olver recently congratulated the ABA in a speech to the U.S. House of Representatives.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Representative JOHN OLVER (D-Mass.) gave a speech on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Feb. 10 congratulating the AMERICAN BUS ASSOCIATION on its 85th anniversary.

In his remarks, Olver said, “I rise to congratulate the American Bus Association, the trade association for the private over-the-road bus and motorcoach industry, on its 85th anniversary in this year of 2011. The ABA represents 800 bus operating companies, along with 3200 other travel, tour and motorcoach manufacturing companies. The members of the ABA provide all manner of transportation services to millions of Americans. Specifically, ABA members provide scheduled service, commuter operations, charter and tour services and airport shuttle services to all parts of the country. A gauge of how well and thoroughly ABA members do their jobs is found in the amazing statistic that the industry provides 760 million passenger trips each year.”

Olver has served in the House since 1991. He sits on the Appropriations Committee and is the ranking member of the Transportation and Housing and Urban Development Subcommittee.

ABA President and CEO, Peter J. Pantuso thanked Olver for his remarks. “Everyone at ABA appreciates his friendship and his support of the motorcoach, tour and travel industry. We look forward to continue to work with the congressman and his fantastic staff in the years to come.”
