Motorcoach trade group the American Bus Association (ABA) has formed a new council for its members who have yellow buses in their fleets.

Peter Pantuso, president and CEO of ABA, told School Bus Fleet that while his association traditionally represents motorcoach operators, they recently realized that about 100 of their 800 members also operate school buses — collectively about 10,000 to 15,000 of the yellow vehicles. Also, he said, many of those companies are not members of any other national organization.

“Therefore, it made sense to us to create a council where school bus operators would have the opportunity to meet and work together, learn from one another, take advantage of ABA’s existing safety and maintenance programs, and collectively address issues that come before the industry,” Pantuso said.
