Dale and Dennis Streif of Caseyville, Ill.-based Vandalia Bus Lines Inc. was named METRO Magazine’s Motorcoach Operator of the Year at this year’s UMA Expo in Atlanta earlier this week.

In business since 1932, Leon Streif acquired a motorcoach operation with five vehicles in 1975, with the family growing that business into a 60-plus fleet of vehicles, boasting not only variety and the latest amenities, but also a high utilization rate.

The day-to-day business is currently run by Leon Streif’s children: Dale Streif, president; Dennis Streif, VP; and Melissa Kaemmerer, treasurer.

In addition to providing safe and reliable charter and shuttle services, the operation also focuses on decreasing its carbon footprint through the usage of biodiesel fuel and the creation of a paperless workplace. They are also active members of the motorcoach industry, with Dennis serving on the boards of both the International Motor Coach Group and the UMA.
