  • List the availability of coaches in specific locations on specific dates.
  • List deadhead coach departures and destination points and dates.
  • List requests for help in specific locations.
  • List offers of help in specific areas or cities. Many operators have services that go to various destinations as a one-way trip and will deadhead on the return. The UMA is encouraging operators to assist in whatever way they can. All items will be posted by UMA staff and must include:
  • Your name and company
  • Your locations, phone, fax and email
  • The services you can provide or the assistance you need
  • The dates and locations of your offer or need
  • Any other pertinent information For postings, email Danielle Staudt at [email protected] or fax the UMA at 703/838-2950.
