Ohio Motorcoach Association Formed to Help Save Industry
COVID-19 is impacting countless industries
At the beginning of the COVID-19 crisis in the U.S., the airline corporations were among the first to feel the impact, and the White House sent signals that providing financial relief would be a priority.
Another sector of the transportation industry — motorcoaches — has also been devastated by the pandemic, and without relief.
- The motorcoach industry came to a screeching halt when social distancing orders went into effect
- A group of operators decided to form the Ohio Motorcoach Association to serve as one statewide voice for the industry
- Members say the new Ohio association they've formed is not only working to support the business owners, but the thousands of employees across the state
