Good Afternoon Everyone,
Has the main street lending program changed any?
Please remind us about the interest rate on MSLP.
We tried this and we have almost perfect credit
Harold Lewis Jr
Hello from Nawlins! Harold Lewis With Lewis Coaches, Inc. here.
If we get Main St Lending doesny that need to for for a EDIL Loan first?
at least one of the three routes on te main street loan allows paying off principle
Please make sure your microphones are muted. Thanks!
Ken - any idea the time line for approval? If one were to apply for EIDL or MSLP today, is either "fast track" approval? Or does it vary from app to app?
We applied for Main Street Loan, perfect credit and also credit score and they said no, because bus market was soft!
can we get relief on unemployment our rates are going to go up with no income we cannot pay what are our options?
You must apply for MSLP before 12/31, I am not sure if that means you have to be approved or just get the application in
if the economy is "recovering" what is the true incentive for a relief bill? A stimulus check of $1200 didn't do too much earlier and another one won't relieve much either
Good Afternoon Everyone if anyone has any questions about membership or registering for the Safety Management Seminar or the 2021 UMA EXPO please contact me at email@example.com or Call me at 70383832929

Bethany which one of your businesses (School or Charter) is running the most of your 10-15%
I am ringing a bell for the Salvation Army November 21 in front of Belk Department Store at our mall.
Please keep in touch with your vendors too - we are here to help!
I am fortunate here at VIP that my boss Lana has allowed me to use our Garage for Toy Distribution, we have had about 40,000.00 worth of toys stored here for a few weeks and now organizations are starting to pick them up for Christmas Families.
It is so important to remember our communities this time of year!
that is excellent Jason.
How many operators have installed, plan to install u-v lights in the air system?+
Good question Greg. I would also like to know.
when we have time. we don’t have the money. visa versa
We are not installing uv lights,
The major manufacturers were on the Women in Buses call yesterday with winterization info - if your buses aren't going to be moving, you probably want to get that info.
Critical point: Allow buses to run long enough to do a regen. Otherwise, DEF may crystalize.
Champion Coach installed 5 of the UV lights from MCI. It's an assurance for customers and an unintended benefit - it gets rid of any smell inside.
why would you spend money on uv lighting when money is tight and this probably won't be an issue a year from now.
How many of your staff have decided to just retire now, or find other jobs driving , Trucks, Schools Buses, etc..
United Motorcoach Association
Good contributions from all.
how are you handling last minute cancelations due to covid issues?
Under the Main Street Lending Program, What are the terms of the loan the eligible borrower must commit to the following terms: Refrain from repayment of the principal balance of, or paying any interest on, any existing debt until the eligible loan is repaid in full—unless the debt or interest payment is mandatory and due Won’t seek to cancel or reduce any of its committed lines of credit with the eligible lender or any other lender Follow compensation, stock repurchase, and capital distribution restrictions that apply to direct loan programs under section 4003(c)(3)(A)(ii) of the CARES Act, such as executive compensation and stock-buy-backs However, an S corporation—or other pass-through tax entity—that’s an eligible borrower may make distributions to the extent reasonably required to cover its owners’ tax obligations in respect of the entity’s earnings. The eligible borrower must also certify that: It has a reasonable basis to believe that, as of the date of origination of the eligible loan and after...
@Bethany, yes! We are trying so many different things and seeing what works. My brain has been in over drive as to what we can do. Thinking outside the box, is the best!
UV light is a lot of money and research does not support its effectivness. Here is a visual the microscopic virus particle would have to exit the humans body via a water droplet. Avoid contact with all obstructions get sucked into the HVAC system then pass byt the UV light at a speed that allows the UV light to kill the virus. In my opinion not very likley. More likley I cough the partick stays in the air and the passenger near me inhals it. Furthermore reasearch and experience has show the passing of virus from passenger to passenger is not likley. We have had multiple groups with positive passengers and have not had any spread on the motor coach one group spent 40 hrs on the coach and only had one test peositive.
We tell our customers, we understand, no fees if 24 hour cancellation.
(continued) The eligible borrower must also certify that: It has a reasonable basis to believe that, as of the date of origination of the eligible loan and after giving effect to such loan, it has the ability to meet its financial obligations for at least the next 90 days and doesn’t expect to file for bankruptcy during that period. It’s eligible to participate in the facility of the loan, including the conflicts of interest prohibition in section 4019(b) of the CARES Act.
Check with frontiinebuses.com. They are in Stockbridge, GA. They have less expensive options available.
We've had three tours in two weeks. We discounted the price by 1/2 in order to help our touring customers help in paying back the passengers that had a credit with them going into Covid. Also, it lends strength to those that are concerned about travelling but it kinda forces them to get on the bus. It's been very positive and new bookings at full price have come back to us.
We did not go with it because not as effective as they thought.
Joel. so what are you using in your coaches ? What typer of chemical ?
Absolutely positive attitudes! I love it.
Ken, can you put all this is the UMA newsletter.
That's fantastic Bruce! I'm happy to hear that has been the situation for you and your organization. That gives us hope for us in the Central Valley.
We have some sports groups booked for this fall/winter. I feel like spring will be a challenge for tours and charters. If everything pans out, we may all be pulling our hair out by Fall 2021, I'm ready! :)
Rachel Guth...TRUE! We are in the same position.
Funny you ask I should have added that. We use 2 systems on the road we carry a Victory sprayer with high risk groups that have alot of contact with other peole such as sports teams. We also use a Curus Fogger and fog coaches after every trip or use the sprayer. We are finding the Fogger has created a smell that I really do not like. THe chemicla in the sprayer leaves an increadibly clean smell that customers notice currently using a product made by Spartan.
I’m selling our shop lifts Ari Hetra if anyone is interested call 6315432500
Good News for us.. Our DOT Inspection went well and we received a Satisfactory rating & zero write ups. Now we just need places to go and people to move :)

I am requesting a low one day rate of less than $100 to attend one full day of the Expo. I am mostly interested in visiting the Expo Floor Displays and perhaps a site visit or evening dinner trip. Could that be offered this year?
Wow, Mitch is very fashionable !
We are at the Rosen for UMA.
I went when, was it Synder was there?
if you have any questions about registering for the 2021 UMA EXPO please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you need a sprayer I would recomend reaching out to Jeff Goldwasser or Steve Brown the Victory one has been very reliable, easy to use and being cordless makes it very portable. We have been able to sell the service on the road for groups including doing locker rooms, hotel rooms and confrence rooms while they travel, this has resulted in sales!
I have a January 1998 102D parts manual, maintenance manual as well as Cat C-10 truck engine manual, Cat C-10 parts manual, service manual for C-10 and C-12 diesel truck service manual and some Allison manuals if anyone need them--i do not (located in California)
i know meet Mr Rosen also President H Bush visited there & he has nice pictures with Oprah
They all are Fantastic
This is the most important year for UMA Expo, for operators to be together and to get support from the vendors.
You’re so right Jeff
And the operators support our vendors as well
We love to go!! Is there anyway you can give us a huge discount so our small company to go?
Boxed Lunches? Not Buffet?
On show floor?
We have been contacted by an individual at CARB. They are trying to reach someone at CBA. Does anyone have a contact for CBA?

Is there anyone here from CBA?
They can reach any of the Board members at CBA including myself.
thank you everyone for joining us today.
