Dear Bus Family,

First, I hope that this finds you safe and well. I pray that you have been able to stave off the virus and that you and your families are staying strong. For those who have been affected by the loss of a loved one, my heart hurts for you.

This is a challenging time for everyone. The trickle-down economics of this pandemic has reached deep into the pockets of not only bus businesses the world over but every industry we are connected too. While we suffer, we also watch our customers, vendors, friends, and families suffer as well.

We have spent a lot of time over the last few weeks talking about government bailouts, grants vs. loans, insurance premiums, and bus payments in an effort to put a tourniquet on our spending and try to get a much-needed infusion of capital.

Like any crisis that we go through, our thoughts have become focused on tomorrow and the next day, the next payroll date, and just making it through the month.

Most companies have applied for loans and are now waiting to see what happens. We reach in our pockets and check our phones over and over, hoping to see the money we need to keep our heads above water. We now hear grumblings of another government bailout program that is on the heels of the last called COVID4.

But if anything is clear right now, it is this.
