The Hershey, Pa-based Museum of Bus Transportation (MOBT) and the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum (AACA) agreed to merge. The award winning AACA Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate and has served as the home of the Museum of Bus Transportation since opening to the public in 2003.

Founded in 1994 the MOBT began renting exhibit space at the AACAM in 2003. They currently have a fleet of 40 historic buses, ranging from a 1908 White to a 2009 battery-powered Proterra. Many are currently stored at an annex, but the plan is to eventually have them all available to the public during the AACAM’s extensive hours.

The plan is to eventually have a crop of stored buses available to the public during the AACAM’s extensive hours.

MOBT’s membership voted overwhelmingly to merge, and at their recent meeting the board of directors named bus industry veterans John Oakman, David Schmidt, and Randy Wilcox to the committee that will represent bus history interests.

Between them, they have more than 130 years of experience in the bus industry. In addition, John Oakman and John Dockendorf have been elected to the AACA Museum’s board.
