Homeless encampments are the latest fire for California motorcoach operators still feeling the negative effects of rampant wildfires in and around popular tourist destinations.

Increasing open drug use and related crimes among the homeless in downtown San Francisco and other major cities throughout the state have led major associations to cancel major conventions, and tourists to make alternate plans. That's had a ripple effect on bus and limo companies that provide convention transport, says Gary Buffo, founder/president of Pure Luxury Transportation.
