MAKING THE JOURNEY HAPPEN

The Pennsylvania Bus Association was founded in 1923 and has functioned without interruption and with an unrelenting commitment to the safety of the traveling public and the economic well-being of its member companies. PBA boasts a well rounded program of activities for both bus operator and supplier members and carries a current membership of over 750 entities. Governmental affairs, travel and tourism marketing, education, safety and communication constitute the major areas of involvement for this, one of the oldest public passenger transportation associations in the United States.

WHY MOTORCOACH GROUP TRAVEL MATTERS

The motorcoach, travel and tourism industry creates jobs nationwide, provides access for communities, and contributes to environmental sustainability. At PBA we strive to provide our members with information to further their businesses and create opportunities for industry connections.


PBA’s Marketplace provides bus operators, tour planners and group leaders the valuable opportunity to learn about exciting new attractions and explore favorite destinations for group travel.

PBA’s Annual Meeting is an industry-wide event devoted to education, business interaction, and social networking. A key component of the event is showcasing the geographic area so that motorcoach operators will return with groups to enjoy a new travel opportunity. 

PBA’s popular “Motorcoach Roadside Inspection Preparedness” Workshop not only provides employees of motorcoach companies an opportunity to learn about safety-related issues, it also establishes a working relationship with the enforcement community so that everyone involved in safety is informed.  Communication to understanding safety measures is the key to providing motorcoach customers with the necessary assurances the industry demands.
