TORRANCE, CA — The president and CEO of the American Bus Association will lead a session at the LCT Eastern Conference that speaks to the major shifts in chauffeured transportation.

As the recession deepens and clients look to more group ground transportation, operators need to be adding motorcoaches to their fleets, as some innovators in the industry already have succeeded with expansion into the charter and tour business. Peter Pantuso, president and CEO of the American Bus Association, will present “Bus Management Finesse: A Panoramic View,” on Thursday, Oct. 8 during the conference to be held at the Mohegan Sun Casino & Resort in Uncasville, Conn.

Whether buses already are one of your service offerings or you are just now considering their addition to diversify your fleet, attend this session and you’ll learn from Pantuso, who’ll describe the ins and outs of the bus business and what its integration really can mean to a chauffeured transportation company.

The American Bus Association is North America's largest motorcoach, tour, and travel association representing more than 65% of all private buses on the highways, as well as private travel related businesses, state and local government travel and tourism offices, state associations, and other entities involved in promoting travel throughout North America.

LCT looks forward to your attendance at LCT East Oct. 7-8. Register by Sept. 14 and SAVE on your full conference pass.
