KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Premier Transportation has been named 2016 Operator of the Year by the Tennessee Motor Coach Association, The Chattanoogan reported.

With Tennessee operations in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Greeneville, the motorcoach operation has the only fleet in the area that already is 100% seat belt-equipped. Premier’s buses have GPS tracking systems and the fleet is Department of Defense-certified, according to the report.

The Knoxville-based operator has the highest possible safety rating in the industry and a breakdown record of less than half of one percent. Certified technicians work on the fleet, and the master mechanics must pass a rigorous series of tests and participate in extensive ongoing education, The Chattanoogan reported.
