According to a recent study released by the American Bus Association Foundation, the fourth quarter of 2015 saw an increase in motorcoach sales. A total of 619 new and 266 pre-owned vehicles were sold in the fourth quarter of 2015 as compared to 459 new and 234 pre-owned vehicles sold the previous quarter.

Altogether in 2015, there were 1,599 private sector and 542 public sector sales as compared to 1,411 private sector and 355 public sector sales in 2014.
