Bus-ting Out

LCT Magazine
Posted on January 29, 2009
BUS SHOWCASE: Buses were the center of attention on the show floor at this week's International LCT Show. Galaxy Coach, based in Santa Ana, Calif., participated for the first time and showed off a mini coach designed to look like a medium-sized motorcoach. And nearly every coachbuilder/manufacturer had some sort of bus to exhibit, especially shuttles and mini buses built on Freightliner, Ford, and GMC chassis. These will usually hold 25 to 35 passengers, and several have been designed as party/limo buses. Operators expanding into buses are getting attention in the press - from LCT (now called Limousine, Charter & Tour - read more about it later today in Driving Force) and from newspaper reports. Reston Limousine Service, based in Sterling, Va., is good at promoting its bus marketing programs. Bus business was a subject of high interest at this year's LCT Show, and it will continue to grow.  -- J.L.
