Deadline looms for 2024 Motorcoach Industry Census

The deadline for the 2024 Motorcoach Industry Census is fast approaching, with industry leaders urging participation to gather crucial data that underscores the sector’s economic and safety contributions.

The last day to take the survey is July 3. This year’s survey has been streamlined to be user-friendly, and take just a few minutes.  By providing accurate information about your company, you empower organizations like ABA, UMA, MCC, and the entire motorcoach sector to advocate on your behalf in Washington, DC, and Ottawa, influencing policies that impact our industry and the broader economy.

The American Bus Association Foundation (ABAF), in partnership with the United Motorcoach Association (UMA) and Motor Coach Canada, conducts this annual census. The data collected is an essential tool to advocate for the industry by providing critical information to government decision-makers, regulators, media, and the public about the motorcoach industry’s impact.

“Accurate and comprehensive data from the census enables us to advocate effectively for our industry,” said Scott Michael, UMA President/CEO. “It helps demonstrate the significant role we play in the economy and in providing safe, efficient transportation for millions.”

The survey, produced by Tourism Economics, a division of Oxford Economics, ensures confidentiality and aggregates data for use in research reports and policy papers. This year, the ABAF is also collaborating with Tourism Economics, a division of Oxford Economics, to enhance the data’s analytical value.

Operator input ‘is critical’

Motorcoach operators are encouraged to complete the survey by July 3. Participation is vital for creating a robust representation of the industry, which can influence policies beneficial to the sector.

Operators who may not feel qualified to complete the survey are urged to forward it to someone in their company who can. The streamlined survey is designed to be user-friendly and takes only a few minutes to complete.

“Your input is more critical than ever,” said Michael. “By contributing to the census, you help ensure that our industry’s voice is heard in Washington and Ottawa, shaping policies that affect us all.”
