Our partner, American Bus Association and United Motorcoach Association staged a "rolling rally" yesterday in Washington, D.C., in an effort to push lawmakers for a $15 billion industry bailout package. 400+ operators and 800+ motorcoaches gathered on the streets of Washington D.C. in an effort to sway lawmakers to provide the sector with $15 billion of grants and loans to save jobs and prevent businesses from folding due to lost revenue from the COVID-19 pandemic.
