ABA is asking all of its operator members to complete the 2012 Motorcoach Census survey before the February 27th deadline. All operators who complete the survey will automatically be entered to win a $500 Visa gift card. The survey can be completed here.

The 2011 Motorcoach Census, a product of the ABA Foundation (ABAF), is one of the few comprehensive sources of information on the industry. ABA uses this information to educate policy makers and the public about the importance of motorcoach travel and tourism.

"It is vitally important that every operator complete the 2011 Motorcoach Census," said ABA President and CEO Peter Pantuso. "The census makes it easier to ask for support from lawmakers, because we can tell them exactly how many of their constituents rely on motorcoach transportation every day. Without these numbers, their support goes elsewhere."

The Motorcoach Census is sponsored by the ABA Foundation in cooperation with United Motorcoach Association, American Bus Association, Motor Coach Canada, Trailways, International Motorcoach Group, Ontario Motor Coach Association, the Quebec Bus Owners Association, Student Youth Travel Association, ABC Companies, Motor Coach Industries, Prevost, and Daimler Buses North America. The study results will provide an accurate picture of the industry to motorcoach operators, the media, lawmakers, business partners and consumers.

The ABAF has selected John Dunham and Associates (JDA) to conduct and manage the data collection for the 2011 Motorcoach Census. We are aware that certain survey questions may be sensitive, and we will treat any data provided as confidential. As part of this data collection, we will only report aggregate industry information to the public At no time, will JDA or the ABAF report individually identifiable survey data to any third party group, company or organization.
