Posted on July 30, 2013

Bobit Business Media was fortunate enough to have Ralph Kramden impersonator Joe Hanna and a 1963 GM New Look bus on loan from the City of Torrance on hand to shoot a string of commercials for BusCon Expo 2013.

The first video is now available, here. Every week you can look forward to a new message from Ralph, so stay tuned for updates. To view all videos, click here.

Registration for the 18th Annual BusCon Expo, taking place Sept. 9 to 11, 2013 at Chicago’s Navy Pier, is now open. The Early Bird deadline to get a discounted rate on a Full Conference Pass or to get a Free Exhibits Only Pass is Friday, August 9.

Now in its 18th year, BusCon continues to bring the bus industry together to share challenges, find solutions and improve performance. Attendees will have the opportunity to compare an unprecedented number of motorcoach, transit, shuttle, paratransit, trolley and alternatively-propelled buses (including electric) side-by-side in a 115,000-square foot exhibit hall, where representatives from some of the biggest companies in the industry will be on hand to answer your questions one-on-one.

The 1963 GM New Look bus on loan from the City of Torrance was renovated by Torrance Transit staff.
