Private Motor Coach Celebrates Ninth Year in Business

Posted on February 5, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

Pharr, Texas — “When people hear about what I do for a living, many respond enviously. They wish they could live their dream like I do every day,” says Ed Lonsbary, the president and founder of Private Motor Coach, Inc. (PMC) The company recently celebrated its ninth anniversary in operation.

Lonsbary has been sharing his passion everyday since January 25, 1999 when at age 51 he left a 26-year corporate career and became the first to offer the unique experience of freedom on the road in a luxury motor home/bus conversion.

Lonsbary welcomes travelers aboard his “house-on-wheels” and takes them anywhere roads lead. In the past nine years, Lonsbary has completed more than 50 trips and drove over 165,000 miles throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Over the nine years, trips have been as unique as his business model. “I enjoy the trips as much as the customers,” quips Lonsbary. He recalled one special trip that focused on AAA baseball, Civil War battlefields, barbeque, and blues. The trip followed the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Natchez Trace, made a visit to the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and finished up in Graceland for the for 25th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s death.

One key service of Private Motor Coach, Inc. is that it provides a travel option for persons with manageable disabilities, who cannot travel via air or car. “These folks can get off the couch at home and go anywhere,” says Lonsbary, “because the coach becomes their temporary home while on the road and an escort is always with them.”

Lonsbary plans to continue offering trips as he moves forward in the ninth year of operation with the geographic expansion of trips and the goal to make the tenth anniversary, a real milestone.

“Private Motor Coach will expand the current offering of trips in our luxury motor coach/bus conversion to include more than just North America. Next on the horizon are trips to Central American and South America,” says Lonsbary.
