Motorcoach Census Shows a Healthy and Vibrant Motorcoach Industry

According to a recent study released by the American Bus Association Foundation, the U.S and Canadian motorcoach industry continues to be one of the most reliable, cost effective and environmentally efficient modes of transportation. Total passenger trips remained strong at 604 million as compared to 762 million (international and domestic) enplanements[1] on domestic air carriers and 30.9 million passengers for Amtrak[2].

The Motorcoach Census details the size and activity of the motorcoach transportation service industry in the United States and Canada for 2014. The study shows that the industry continues to serve a broad range of customers, from students to seniors, and moves people with great fuel efficiency. The industry provides charter, tour, and sightseeing services, which are of vital importance to the travel and leisure industries, and intercity and commuter services, which are essential components of the passenger transportation systems in both the United States and Canada. In 2014, the industry created a total of 128,300 jobs in 2014; 71,900 full-time and 56,400 part-time.
