Bus operators, by definition, are private companies that own motor coaches and/or other passenger vehicles 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.
OMCA gives you the resources you need to get you ahead. We’ll keep you up to date with important information and seminars. OMCA events provide the opportunity to meet suppliers and network with new contacts. We give you an industry voice through OMCA advocacy. From information to contacts, we’re the experts on keeping you on the road and ahead of the competition.
Newly activated or reactivated coach operator memberships are subject to an $500 initiation fee and will undergo review by OMCA staff and Board of Directors before the membership is approved.
Annual membership fees for a 12-month calendar year (Jan-Dec) are based on your fleet size (see below). Companies with both coaches and school buses in their fleet will have two types of membership (details below).
Companies with school buses in their fleet must purchase membership for the number of school buses involved in charter work (minimum of 10% of overall bus fleet) in addition to the coach fleet memebrship fees. For example, a company with 9 coaches and 3 school buses will pay: $750 + $300 = $1,150
