TORRANCE, CA — The Global Ground Transportation Institute (GGTI) on July 24 announced a new partnership with Bus Advisors, LLC, to create educational content for its members.

Bus Advisors LLC is an independently-held firm that consults on safety, compliance, and business practices for the ground transportation industry.

Bus Advisors’ President Tom Holden said after 17 years in the chauffeur and motorcoach industry, he’s looking forward to being part of the training GGTI provides.

“I look forward to be part of the new GGTI community working with, learning with, and helping all types of ground transportation companies grow and operate safer and more compliant companies,” Holden said.

The educational content is still being developed, but it will include topics such as safety auditing, financials, Department of Transportation (DOT) compliance, ADA compliance, growth strategies and best business practices, to name a few. Content will be delivered through webinars, in-person trainings, and other venues.
Holden, a regular contributor to Luxury Coach & Transportation (LCT) Magazine, will continue to hos educational sessions at the LCT East Show in November 2019 and International LCT Show in February 2020.

GGTI executive director Sarah Gazi said she knows Bus Advisors will provide high value to their membership through this educational program.

“Bus Advisors was chosen because Tom has been a great supporter of LCT and the industry as a whole. Their team has a unique way of delivering some complicated topics and making them easy to digest and implement,” Gazi said.

The creation of GGTI was announced in early July by its founder, Bobit Business Media, whose portfolio includes nine magazines, 13 conferences and trade shows and 11 industry websites specific to ground transportation. Bobit created the group because they saw a need to unify all segments of ground transportation, as many of them face similar challenges and regulations. The institute’s purpose is to connect its membership to industry thought-leadership, best practices, education and networking. The official launch date will be announced soon.
