Has the main street lending program changed any?

If we get Main St Lending doesny that need to for for a EDIL Loan first?
Tom Giddens
22:02
at least one of the three routes on te main street loan allows paying off principle
Julianne Ryder
23:17
Please make sure your microphones are muted. Thanks!
John Kruger
23:40
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?
Brenda Tidwell
25:40
We applied for Main Street Loan, perfect credit and also credit score and they said no, because bus market was soft!
Alfred Caliano
25:49
can we get relief on unemployment our rates are going to go up with no income we cannot pay what are our options?
David Moody
25:55
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
Brenda Tidwell
26:04
PLEASE MUTE~!
ginny orr
26:15
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
Antonio Thomas

How many operators have installed, plan to install u-v lights in the air system?+
Leon Griebenow
42:43
Good question Greg. I would also like to know.
Kevin Creighton
43:24
when we have time. we don’t have the money. visa versa
Brenda Tidwell
43:36
We are not installing uv lights,
Michelle Wiltgen
45:12
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.
Bruce Ebmeyer
45:57
Critical point: Allow buses to run long enough to do a regen. Otherwise, DEF may crystalize.
Matt Dance
46:14
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.
Ric Banister
46:36
why would you spend money on uv lighting when money is tight and this probably won't be an issue a year from now.
Jason Briggs
47:53
How many of your staff have decided to just retire now, or find other jobs driving , Trucks, Schools Buses, etc..

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...
Rachel Guth
49:10
@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!
Joel Prive
49:12
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.
Brenda Tidwell
49:13
We tell our customers, we understand, no fees if 24 hour cancellation.
Ken Presley
49:42
(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.
Bruce Ebmeyer
51:02
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.
Brenda Tidwell
51:15
We did not go with it because not as effective as they thought.
Jeff Goldwasser
51:55
Joel. so what are you using in your coaches ? What typer of chemical ?
Tracy Fickett
52:17
Absolutely positive attitudes! I love it.
Brenda Tidwell
52:30
Ken, can you put all this is the UMA newsletter.
Jasmine Sayah
52:49
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.
Rachel Guth
53:49
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! :)
Bruce Ebmeyer
54:27
Rachel Guth...TRUE! We are in the same position.
Joel Prive
55:17
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.

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!
