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) 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, 2024. Upon renewal the appropriate annual due amount will be charged (see annual dues chart).
