  CH Bus delivers TS 30 to Hawaii
 

Royal Star Hawaii continues to expand its transportation offerings to meet the evolving needs of travelers with the addition of two new Gold TEMSA TS 30 Series Mini Coaches from CH Bus Sales.

The new 34-seat mini coaches feature designer upholstery, reclining chairs with adjustable footrests, and individual lighting and air conditioning controls.  The large tinted windows with adjustable shades offer wide panoramic views, while an air ride suspension provides a smooth, comfortable ride.

   

The mini coaches also include an advanced audio/DVD video system with microphone and flat screens. The kneeling feature allows for easy access boarding. The world class TEMSA coach is a fully integral mid-sized coach, constructed from stainless steel, with an independent front suspension and automatic transmission, contributing to a smooth, comfortable drive. The superb European design and quality create a superior customer experience, while the American driveline (Cummins/Allison) provides excellent power and optimum serviceability, according to the company.

 
  New "GoMotorcoach" Program Emphasizes Sales & Marketing
 

Beginning in 2014, the Motorcoach Marketing Council began unveiling its new “GoMotorcoach” campaign and branding, which shifted its original focus from being the advocacy voice for the industry to helping the industry find its own voice in the markets they serve.
 

“The Council started with a broader base idea that we would one day reach out to consumers through national media ads directly to get them to ride motorcoaches,”  explains the Council’s Chair Peter Shelbo.

“Through some decisions amongst the present board, we decided it would be the best to train the operators how to reach out to customers in their markets while maintaining our ‘Go Motorcoach’ branding.”

The program the Council began to roll out in 2014 at the American Bus Association’s Marketplace, the United Motorcoach Association’s Expo and other industry shows around the nation now includes a host of marketing flyers, post cards, rack cards, table cloths, posters and more that operators can access via the Council’s website (http://motorcoachmarketing.org), customize with their own branding and photos, and print out to help increase their business as well as the industry’s overall profile.

GoMotorcoach also includes videos on as many as 22 specific niches — from weddings to concerts and events — that first help teach operators about the opportunities available in that particular market, and then, what they can do to begin generating business in that specific sector.

“What we’re really trying to do is create a structure that we can use to educate the industry and make them more effective,” says Christian Riddell of deliverabilities.com, the creative force behind the new GoMotorcoach tools and training programs. “The mission of the Council hasn’t really changed, they want more people riding on coaches tomorrow then they did today, but the way that will happen is accessing the marketing budgets of all of the individual operators that are already spending money and helping them to become more effective at what they do.”
