ABA releases anti-terrorism action plan to members

Posted on January 3, 2003

As part of its ongoing effort to provide the industry with security enhancement tools, more than 800 bus operators recently received an anti-terrorism action plan and video series from the American Bus Association (ABA). The plan includes materials intended to outline a number of security measures that operators can implement and provides training videos and materials for bus operation employees. The action plan also suggests smart, strategic partnerships that operators might forge at the local level in order to ensure the swiftest possible response to any terrorist threat or incident involving motorcoaches. The association made the package available to operator members at no charge to insure the broadest possible distribution among industry stakeholders. "While this plan begins to address necessary tools needed to enhance security in our industry, it is just a first step, and we will work vigorously with Congress next year to ensure Federal commitment toward motorcoach security," said Peter J. Pantuso, ABA president and CEO.
