“There are so many different aspects of ABA that I love…
the Marketplace, where I build new business relationships
and deepen existing relationships with clients, the year-round
educational opportunities, the legislative arm that fights hard for
the entire membership base and the sense of community like none other.
My ABA membership has been a constant for over 12 years in my current
position and years before that with previous companies. By becoming a member of ABA,
it gives you the opportunity to knock on the door… by volunteering and getting involved in the organization is where the magic happens”.
– Amanda Thibeau, Director, National Accounts, Aimbridge Hospitality

Notice: Motorcoach Operator Requirements
Motorcoach/bus operator membership is for private companies that own motorcoaches and perform a variety of transportation services such as charters, retail tours, scheduled service, sightseeing, local receptive operations, school bus, package express and special operations. Some also own travel agencies. Bus operator members must have operating authority from the U.S. Transportation Department or their state or provincial authorities to qualify for membership. If not applicable to that location, then proof of liability insurance is required. All active motorcoach operator members must maintain a satisfactory safety rating in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s SAFER System (safersys.org) in order to continue receiving member benefits.
Bus Operator membership requests are placed in a pending status for 30 days, allowing for comment by ABA operators to insure credibility of the pending operator. After that period, the membership becomes fully active. Membership is valid thru June 30, 2023. Upon renewal the appropriate annual due amount will be charged (see annual dues chart) .
