Almost anybody can attest to the fact that politicians are Very Important People. Their actions and decisions have the power to affect millions of lives, so they develop acute and critical attention to detail.

Because of their status, they possess discerning tastes and standards. Any charter bus operator who successfully serves them can count on being among the industry elite. It’s not easy to transport these high-profile passengers; political campaigns are delicate endeavors that require operators to display mastery over the art of service and the courage, confidence and capability to tackle complex logistics. But operators who work hard to put their companies in a position to serve clients of high caliber will reap benefits for years to come.

Ray Land has provided transportation for the Governor of Florida, the White House Press Corps and U.S. Senatorial campaigns. His Branford, Fla.-based operation, Fabulous Coach Lines, deploys a mixed fleet of sedans, motorcoaches and Turtle Top minibuses.

“Once you’re in, you’re in, and they’ll call you,” says Ray Land, president and CEO of Branford, Fla.-based Fabulous Coach Lines. Land has provided transportation for the Governor of Florida, the White House press corps and U.S. Senatorial campaigns.

Dan Goff of A Goff Limousine & Bus Company of Charlottesville, Va., whose credentials include providing transportation for President George W. Bush, 2008 Republican candidate Mike Huckabee, and President Obama, among others, backs up Land’s statement.

“Once the White House finds you, and once you’ve been vetted and successfully perform the function, you get on ‘the list’, and then they find you again,” Goff says.
