44th Annual California Bus Association Convention & Trade Show

October 15-17,  2017

Viejas Casino & Resort

Alpine, CA (near San Diego)



Join bus companies from all over the west at this year’s exciting and informative convention! As always, the CBA Convention & Trade show will afford you the opportunity to exchange your ideas, war stories and experiences with other operators and suppliers. Invest four days in the future of your company! You can’t afford to miss it.


This year we are partnering with the American Bus Association for the Bus Industry Safety Council West meeting for the Tuesday educational sessions. Get a feel for how and what the Bus Industry Safety Council is, when they will meet and how you can get involved. The goal of improving motorcoach safety and ensuring that your bus is ready to travel safely down the road, is one that we should all share. If you are a safety, compliance or maintenance professional, this is where you need to be.  CBA has a special registration fee for non-member bus companies that will include the BISC sessions and the CBA Trade Show. 


See below for the schedule and registration information. Register today - this will be one of the best conventions we have ever had!


The Sunday Family Tour

Join us for an "insiders" tour of San Diego. You'll get the local take on why this is called America's Finest City. Traveling by deluxe motor coach (what else) we'll visit all the highlights, including: The vibrant downtown area with the exciting Gaslamp Quarter and the waterfront embarcadero with its ships and sights. Just 10 minutes away is Balboa Park, home of the world famous San Diego Zoo and many museums. From this beautiful park we'll travel north to the world famous seaside community of La Jolla. Time for a walk along beach cliffs with stunning ocean views and a very good chance of viewing some marine life, including Sea Lions and Pelicans. Then we're off to historic Old Town where the modern city began in 1769. We'll have a knowledgeable guide on board to share stories and offer commentary about our wonderful city. Lunch will be on the patio at Casa Guadalajara with a Mariachi trio. 

Coach will depart from Viejas at 10:00 am and will return from at 4:00 pm.
