ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — Two information-packed back-to-back sessions that will equip both new and experienced operators on strategies on buying buses and updates on the latest rules and regulatory issues will be held during the three-day LCT-NLA Show East that runs Oct. 19-21 at the Atlantic City Convention Center and Caesars Atlantic City.

On Monday, Oct. 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., learn from industry experts the latest regulatory, legislative, and policy rules and regulations at the panel, “A Whole New Rulebook: Regulatory Framework for Buses.” Moderated by Tom Halligan, LCT East Coast editor, panelists include Marc Nault, of Admin 2000, Stephen Story, CEO of James River Transportation in Richmond, Va., and Tom Holden, director of operations at Rose Chauffeured Transportation in Charlotte, N.C.

The seminar will tackle specific rules that are most troubling to operators venturing into the bus niche, and panelists will share expert advice on compliance, recordkeeping, driver requirements, and more.

The following session “First Time Buyers School” will be held from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. The session will discuss the many options and strategies to consider when buying your first bus. A seasoned panel of experts will also provide insight and “lessons learned” that will help operators avoid pitfalls in bus purchases.

Stephen Story, CEO of James River Transportation in Richmond, Va., will share his regulatory expertise running one of the oldest charter bus transportation companies on the East Coast.
