Motorcoach Business Survey: 2021

Instructions and General Information

Thank you in advance from The American Bus Association:

This survey helps the industry provide valuable information to legislators across both the United States and Canada. 

In order to complete the survey you will need to collect information on mileage by bus size, the number of trips completed, and your employees.  It is advisable to compile this information prior to completing the survey.  Once you have that information available, the survey should take no more than 20-25 minutes to complete.


For the purpose of this survey, a motorcoach is a vehicle designed for transportation of passengers, characterized by an elevated passenger deck located over a baggage compartment and at least 35 feet in length with a capacity of 30 passengers or more.

If the answer to a question is zero please enter a 0, otherwise if the answer is N/A or if you do not wish to respond to a specific question enter in 9999.

For companies with multiple DOT Numbers, please enter your combined company information.  We have inserted the DOT number that we have on file for your firm at the end of the survey.  We ask that you update that if it is incorrect.

Note that if you cannot complete the survey in one sitting, there is a button to the top right hand side of your screen labeled Save and Continue Later that will save the responses that you have submitted so far.


John Dunham & Associates and the ABA Foundation will treat your company information confidentially. Individually identifiable data will not be shared with any third party group.

If you have any questions about the survey please contact the following:

Please remember, this information is critical to the motorcoach industry.  Most of the data that helps us present information about our industry to the media and to Congress comes from this research.
