Transportation Mgmt Svcs. acquires Coach America operations

Posted on September 13, 2012

Transportation Management Services Inc. (TMS) acquired certain assets and operations of Coach America Holdings Inc. and merged the acquired assets into its Horizon Coach Lines and Cabana Coaches operations. The combined entity is now one of the largest privately-owned charter and tour bus operators in the country. It will operate more than 1,200 vehicles.

TMS acquired operations in 15 markets: Los Angeles; San Francisco; San Diego; Phoenix; Las Vegas; Denver; Houston; Miami; West Palm Beach, Fla.; Orlando, Fla.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Charlotte, N.C.; Winston-Salem, N.C.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and Jacksonville, N.C.

The acquired businesses will operate under the Horizon Coach Lines brand name and be based in Dallas. TMS will continue operations in most of the acquired markets while continuing to work with its existing independent bus network to meet the growing needs of its events and government services client base.

“We look forward to working with our many new customers and employees as we integrate the former Coach America locations into our Horizon Coach Lines operations to provide best in class service in the motorcoach industry," said TMS CEO Frank Sherman. "TMS also remains committed to working with our independent bus operators to continue our focus on high quality customer service.”
