The Bus Maintenance and Repair Council (BusMARC) was created in 2016 by the American Bus Association. Currently, the leadership, structure and program activities of the Council are being developed to meet the needs of ABA's bus operator members and address the need for continuing maintenance education and compliance training as well as provide a new venue for equipment, parts and service providers to interact with the bus industry.
