Busbaby.com Expands Footprint in Major Metropolitan Markets
Rising demand for Charter bus transportation has prompted Busbaby.com to launch a build out of their Affiliate Network program in ten (10) U.S. metropolitan cities. Adding additional motor coach operator/partners will allow Busbaby.com to better serve the needs of a growing group travel constituency and increase market share.
The expansion, described as phase one of a two phase plan to address a six (6) month increase in internet and call center traffic, is aimed to increase capacity and charter bus availability. Phase one will focus on qualifying and adding charter bus operators to their existing affiliate network, in the targeted metropolitan markets, to achieve a 25% increase in each market.
Cities targeted for phase one expansion include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Austin, Atlanta, Miami, New York City, and Washington, DC. Charter Bus Operators added to the Busbaby.com affiliate network will include those that service these areas.
With a commitment to safety, quality, and professionalism, Busbaby.com affiliate network members must comply with USDOT standards, FMCSA insurance minimums, display exemplary safety and inspection records, and operate a fleet of deluxe, late model charter buses.
Orlandus Thomas, Busbaby.com CEO, explains their inclusion policy this way; “We adopted a customer-centric approach to business from the beginning. Our success is due, in part, to acting as an advocate for our customers in a minimally regulated industry. That is why our operator/partners must be reputable and share our commitment to integrity and customer satisfaction.”
Mr. Thomas indicated that phase two of the expansion plan is slated to launch in the second quarter of 2009. Phase two, while still in the R&D stage by the Business Development department, will address growth and capacity via Call Center expansion.
