WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The fourth quarter of 2015 saw an increase in motorcoach sales, according to a recent study released by the American Bus Association Foundation. A total of 619 new and 266 used vehicles were sold in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to 459 new and 234 used vehicles sold the previous quarter. Altogether in 2015, there were 1,599 private sector and 542 public sector sales as compared to 1,411 private sector and 355 public sector sales in 2014.

The Coach Manufacturer Survey helps the industry in understanding trends in motorcoach purchasing to more accurately predict product development and demand. The survey details the private and public sector sales of new and used motorcoaches as well as shell, engine and transmission sales.
