Leon Griebenow
36:36
for some reason we are not seeing the whole document?
Julianne Ryder - UMA
37:07
Leon, I am not sure what you're seeing. Is the right side cut off?
Leon Griebenow
38:35
there it is
Kevin Creighton
39:20
Can we slip coaches in for 25 billion?
Leon Griebenow
41:17
Make it 100 billion Kevin
Jasmine Sayah
41:18
As I hear this it appears to have nothing that supports our industry? Transit, Amtrak, and school buses. No assistance in purchasing or attaining new equipment.
Mark Szyperski
41:58
Would there be Extra Money for 5311(f) programs?
Kevin Creighton
42:20
Again we’re set aside
Jasmine Sayah
42:40
This investment package continue the green new deal with no support of our diesel powered motorcoaches.
chris moyer

Basically we have to bight our tongue as we are being hung out to dry yet again
Ginny Orr

*bite
Trisha Fridrich
44:44
You can also call your elected officials!
Tom Giddens
45:11
I wish we could show up in their office.
Tom Giddens
45:39
But your right. We need to keep calling about our concerns
chris moyer
45:40
Firestone fs400 hmmm
Trisha Fridrich
45:55
Soon, we'll be able to do that, but until then, keep calling and emailing!
Kevin Creighton

Using 365 for the gravel roads to the Gold Mine. 22 ply? Instead of 18.
Bill Kaiser

10,500 lbs compared to 9370 or 9090 on 315s Kevin

Throwback Thursday to Engineering school!
Adriana Hemzacek
51:27
Let's do some engineering problems during Expo breaks! Prizes involved for the winner!
Jim Torrisi
51:37
Road Temp or road temp?
Kevin Creighton
51:38
I just know Bill that Gold Mine Gravel shreds these babies
Brad York
54:35
20% underinflated equates to a runflat condition and will significantly damage your tires!
Jim Torrisi
54:41
So luggage and such should be loaded rear to front on the coach
chris moyer
54:48
Are you recommending running the tire pressures based on the vin plate?
Brad York
55:43
Chris - yes, always follow the placard unless you have modified and added weight.
chris moyer
56:34
Thank you Brad…..thats what we always go by I was just making sure :)
Brad York
56:54
Just make sure they are "cool" when you check pressures.
Kevin Creighton
59:11
Gauge is on the boat in a container in the Suez Canal
chris moyer
01:05:20
What do you recommend for balancing? Beads?
chris moyer
01:10:06
Does anyone actually run retread on a charter bus?
Ginny Orr
01:10:22
not me
Todd Campbell
01:10:49
Balancer machine. No beads. YES on retreads.
Adam Hall
01:11:10
We do not have many
Kevin Creighton
01:11:21
Also good to watch weight on cut aways
Brad York
01:11:29
Retreads can work on buses very well, but the concern is always safety. Most companies using retreads see their buses every night.
Celeste Orozco
01:11:30
I have a question for the UMA.What is the UMA as an association representing our industry doing to regulate the insurance industry?
Adriana Hemzacek
01:12:48
Kudos, Antonio!!!!
chris moyer
01:13:08
Thank you for the tire info!!! Very good info
Kevin Creighton
01:14:02

Celeste Orozco

David Beagle

At Holland America we ran recaps on the rear axles. 300+ coaches and no retread failures for about the last 10-15 years. Lower temps in Alaska and Seattle, even in the summer. In Bay Area commuter service we put on a lot of drive axle recaps.
Kevin Creighton
01:15:46
Great cost savings. Harder rubber
Adam Hall
01:16:06
Great job Luke. Outstanding presentation
Brad York
01:16:44
That harder compound helps in more severe service conditions like urban transit and mine runs.
