Motorcoach/bus operator membership is for private companies that own motorcoaches and perform a variety of transportation services such as charters, retail tours, scheduled service, sightseeing, local receptive operations, school bus, package express and special operations. Some also own travel agencies. Bus operator members must have operating authority from the U.S. Transportation Department or their state or provincial authorities to qualify for membership. If not applicable to that location, then proof of liability insurance is required. Bus operator membership requests are placed in a pending status for 30 days, allowing for comment by ABA operators to insure credibility of the pending operator. After that period, the membership becomes fully active.
