Celebrating its 90th anniversary this year, Vandalia Bus Lines, started as a dream by a husband and wife who wanted to be in the coach charter business. The Streif family, now three generations strong, worked side by side, from very humble beginnings to grow the company into one of the most significant operators in the Midwest, operating from the St. Louis region.
The family’s passion and commitment for the motorcoach industry has been inspiring and the IMG award was a huge recognition of their continuing excellence.
“It is a great honor to receive this award from such an elite organization IMG, where every member challenges each other to be the best,” said Dennis Streif, VP at Vandalia on behalf of the family. “This award would not be possible without our team members, where our culture is to strive to be the very best. This is a recognition of their collective performance. We have always been happy, proud, and honored to be included in the IMG group and this award is accepted with great pride by all of the Vandalia family”
“This is an amazing honor for everyone at Vandalia Bus Lines. Their commitment not only to IMG but the wider motorcoach industry and in their local community, is being recognized, said IMG President Bronwyn Wilson. “Dennis has been an ongoing contributor within IMG, as a past chairman and today an active board member. Many have said this recognition was overdue, but today we are very proud of our 2022 Operator of the Year.”
