How does the number of sponsors for these bills compare to most legislation introduced in Congress ?
Brent Kelly
23:23
The President mentioned today a second round of airline bailouts. Are we even on his radar or only Pence and the Co-Sponsored Senators?
Tom Giddens
26:25
What is the best way to reach Pelosi. Unless your in her district you can not reach her email.

Dennis Streif
27:31
For the good of all AMERICAN; voters, people that are not working, they need to stay in session until this is settled. Pelosi just rejected a short term solution. We need to pressure our Senator and Congress people.
ERIC JONES
27:46
Just about every trip (university, schools, charters, etc...) are now canceled through October. Aren't we in a far more dire situation than is being admitted? Or is it just me feeling this way?
Ric Banister
28:42
Amen, Eric
Michelle Moore
28:50
Yes, we are in a dire situation. :(
Tom Giddens
30:17
In yesterdays President s news conferance a news reporter asked about the ambulance industry. how can we get an reporter to ask about the motorcoach industry
Debby Bernier
30:26
we have had all contracted charter and tours cancel through December. the conversation should include collecting data on how many uma members are experiencing this. we don't really know, do we????
Personnel Safety
30:56
payroll grant. sounds like PPP.
Christian Stanley
31:42
Hampton Jitney, NY: We have a few booked for the spring. Everything school related has been cancelled through EOY.
Constance Giddens
32:30
Even the Ambulance association got President Trump’s attention yesterday in his Town Hall meeting. How do WE get his attention?? Do we have any reporters that sit in his question and answer session who could ask him about us? He said he would look into the ambulance problem because he didn’t know about it.
Roberta Ann Amrhein
33:18
Same here, charters, school trips, sports trips both school and orioles reach program gone.
santokh sohal
33:42
PPP type of loan doesn't make sense as most of us don't have working employees at the moment, but have lots of other bills such as rent, insurance, lease of buses and equipment and utilities. we need a loan that covers these expenses and not so much for employees
Clarence Cox
33:55
Are we capturing the stats and photos of the buses used in recent evacuation due to the hurricanes?
Bob B
34:11
We have virtually nothing left for trips in 2020. Turning our focus to booking up 2021 and praying for things to turn around.
John Kruger
34:37
When you call, write, email and you can't speak to a human, you get a blanket letter reply from a letter or email... this is from my representatives... should I contact other leaders that might be receptive or is this the same for everyone else? From different states?
United Motorcoach Association
34:44
Send any photos to jryder@uma.org
Michael McDaniels
35:19
This industry is made up of small business across the entire US. I know many have sent letters to our representatives and we get a generic response. We need our local representaives to assist .
Bryce snyder
35:22
here in Washington state is all dead for the year
Louis Hotard
36:42
Should we send pictures of all the parked buses in our yards?
United Motorcoach Association
36:43

If you can, try to talk to the legislative assistant for each Senator, or Representative. I was able to do this yesterday. They were positive with their responses.
John Kruger
39:59
Greg - did you call your rep's DC #? I can't get ahold of anyone.

ERIC JONES

I do NOT see NFL playing to fans, nor NCAA. But that is my opinion.
Michelle Moore
47:54
I have the ear of Senator Rubio
Michelle Moore
48:25
How would I say motorcoaches cover almost the same amount of miles as airlines?
Ken Presley
49:51
Airlines provide nearly 800 million passenger trips annually; the motorcoach industry provides nearly 600 million.
Roberta Ann Amrhein
51:00
Drivers are still in, but drivers may not be back in 4th qtr., will this be a carry over for the 2021 year.
Ken Presley
51:09
The motorcoach industry transports more people in two weeks than Amtrak does all year.
United Motorcoach Association

Russell Jackson

We have a lot of drivers that now have extablished sleep cycles that they have not had in years. Need to be mindful when we schedule long overnight trips.
Clarence Cox
57:31
If an employee test positive, do you share that information with other employees or follow normal HIPA rules?
roger giannini

Mike McDonal
01:02:43
If a driver does need to get a pre employment drug test because of the criteria Bob dioscussed will they need a new DQ file
ERIC JONES
01:04:11
Lancer just changed and is now charging 100/day if you put back on for just ONE day...…….how can we operate if we now are paying 15 to 20% of our daily income for few and far between charters just for this 'additional' charge???
ERIC JONES
01:04:18
I would like Lancer to tell all of us...…..
United Motorcoach Association
01:05:06
UMA AssurCLEAN decals are being mailed out every day. Does anyone have them on their vehicles yet? Please share your photos with UMA at jryder@uma.org
Michelle Moore
01:06:00
PMA tells me as of Sept 30th, full payment for insurance will be required. They will put us out of business before the banks. I would love to know if anyone else is experiencing this and if anyone has any ideas.
Edna Dakkak
01:06:18
We received a Cert from UMA for AssurCLEAN. Whom should we request the decals from?
Bob Crescenzo
01:06:26
if a driver tests positive, it must be reported to the Clearinghouse and should be noted on the required response to other employers about that drivers drug testing history
United Motorcoach Association
01:07:26
Edna, once you get the digital materials from AssurCLEAN, your decals should come in the mail shortly thereafter.
Bob Crescenzo
01:08:01
if a driver is “rehired” by the same company you can continue the original DQ file and update any items necessary to qualify the driver.
Mike McDonal
01:08:13
Louis should we update our MCS 150 with those fleet numbers as well
KEVIN CREIGHTON
01:09:44
we put in fuel stabilization fluid and ran buses for awhile
Gladys Gillis
01:09:46
does DEF crystallize? if so, is there an additive to avoid that?
roger giannini
01:10:23
TRY EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU JUMP A DETROIT ENGINE
Gladys Gillis
01:10:29
Kevin - did you put the stabilizer in the DEF tank?
KEVIN CREIGHTON
01:10:37
def usual shelf life without too much heat is 8 months.
roger giannini
01:10:49

Not for us, the March inspection with county and state was rescheduled for July, they came and inspected them in July. The August inspection is scheduled and will go as planned, even though the buses have not moved
Andy Byars
01:11:02
DEF will deteriorate very quickly once opened so if its been sitting for months its probably not going to be useable.
Matt Dance
01:11:48
We had some strange issues with the o-rings in the davco fuel filter caps. Check those and tighten cap if applicable.
Gladys Gillis
01:11:51
thanks!!
Anne Nauta
01:12:32
If the drug test is done under the FMCSA authority, and the CDl is used as the identifier - the result would be shared with the Clearinghouse. A drug test done under the authority of the FTA would use the social security number of the donor and the results are not shared with the Clearinghouse. Correct?
United Motorcoach Association
01:12:55
March 3-7, 2021. We WILL be together again.
Rich Broughton
01:13:26
Thanks to everyone will see you all next week Will still be working with our two Senators offices and keep you updated stay healthy and safe
Bob Crescenzo
01:13:47

I was there a couple of weeks ago at Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom. The wait times were 5-10 minutes per ride. The parks were less than 30% capacity
