It is not just the motorcoach and tour companies and the attractions that are feeling the effects, but also the local economies that rely on tourism.
A number of group tour and travel associations came together this week to urge Congress and the Administration to end the government shutdown immediately and end the harmful economic effects to the United States and its tourism industry.
The EPA recently opened a Diesel Emission Reduction Act (DERA) grant opportunity for, among other items, school bus retrofit and motorcoach engine replacement projects. ABA can help members apply.
