Welcome to the California Bus Association!Since, 1969, the California Bus Association has given Motorcoach companies a venue to pursue excellence in the industry. Our dedicated members work together to provide information that assists all operators, large and small, in their daily business success. The association is a resource and offers members information on compliance with regulatory agencies - the U. S. Department of Transportation, Federal Highway Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, California Highway Patrol, Department of Motor Vehicles, Air Resources Board and others.
Continuing Education Opportunities
The association has an annual spring maintenance seminar where
technicians from across California come to learn the latest technology
and best practices to keep the coaches operating safely. Each year in
Sacramento we hold a Charter Party Carrier Round-table discussion with
the various agencies that regulate our industry. This results in better
understanding between the operators and regulators. The annual
convention which is held in October each year, is another excellent
opportunity for our members to learn about regulatory issues, safe
operations and connect with industry vendors.

Being an Operator can be difficult thanks to all of the State and Federal regulations. In fact, California has some of the most stringent regulations in the United States! Being a member opens up a wealth of knowledge to help you be in compliance with all of the regulations that govern the industry.
