Not everyone was pleased. Shuster proposed eliminating the current 17-cent partial fuel tax exemption for motor coaches, which would also then see its gas tax increased by 20 cents for an overall increase of 37 cents a gallon, American Bus Association President & CEO Peter Pantuso said in a statement.
“I’m not entirely sure why the Chairman chose this course when our industry provides the most economical form of public transportation for so many travelers, commuters and students alike,” Pantuso said.
