ABA Presents Green Operator, Women in Buses Awards

Posted on January 17, 2014

TORRANCE, Calif. —  Two American Bus Assocation (ABA) member motorcoach companies, Coach USA, the parent company of Megabus.com, and H&L Charters, won the ABA’s “Green Operator Award,” sponsored by Motor Coach Industries (MCI). Coach USA/Megabus.com of Paramus, N.J., was picked from the candidates in the large category of motorcoach operators, those with a fleet size of more than 30 motorcoaches. H&L of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. was picked in the small category with 30 or fewer buses.

The two companies were selected by their peers after an extensive review process of their daily motorcoach operations, which also included the company’s commitment to environmentally-friendly ways to drive, the use of anti-idling techniques when the coach is not in use, the safest and greenest ways to recycle oil and other engine fluids, and overall business practices that promote environmental protection and awareness.

Meanwhile, Mary Young, owner of Capitol Tours in West Columbia, S.C., won the first ever “ABA Media Women in Buses Award.” The ABA’s Women in Buses group was founded more than two years ago to encourage professional women in the motorcoach, travel and tourism industries to work together to form new business and networking opportunities.
