IMHO...………..if congress doesn't physically see or know the 'damage', will they do anything? Do we have numbers, state by state, who is out of business? Asking for money without some solid facts seems like a lose/lose deal with getting relief. To be honest, amazed how many companies are still floating upgright. Good job!!!!!!
Mona S

Brokers have no place in our industry!!!!!!
Ryan Sanders

They have the least amount of risk and the most amount of profit!
Masters Touch Tours
57:37
I found that the brokers actually hurt your company.
Ryan Sanders
57:55
We need them out of our organizations!
larry fowler
59:21
what kind of brokers?
STEVE COTTLE
59:21
AMAZING TO ME THAT CLIENTS WILL GET INTO TOUCH WITH W A BROKER WHEN MOTORCOACH COMPNIES ARE VERY VISABLE IN THE LOCAL MARKET.
Ryan Sanders
59:58
The problem is that these brokers are so slick that the potential customers don't realize that they don't actually own buses.
Carole James
01:00:23
We found out this morning that our website has been hacked. Has this happened to anyone else? And has anyone heard of the company Sitelock?
Harold Lewis
01:00:25
Brokers only exist because there are operators willing to work with them. Let that sit in.....
ERIC JONES
01:00:33
True, Harold.
Lauren Grote
01:00:34
Agreed, keep them out! Even if you think you are registered on FTA website, you may need to update your information/status. Its worth double-checking!
Harold Lewis
01:00:46
Let that sink in sorry lol
Kevin Creighton
01:00:51
they will even tell you they own buses in every major city
Anita O'Hear
01:01:50
the rules are getting stricter - we live on the border and still can't cross to our cottage or sell our Canadian tour
Daniell Mouzon
01:02:50
yes Harold so true. if they don’t entertain the brokers our industry will be much better.
larry fowler
01:02:56

Jeff Goldwasser

Bus Association of New York misses our Canadian operator members.
Lauren Grote
01:03:52
We miss visiting our Canadian friends & destinations!
christopher Moyer
01:04:15
Is anyone still owed money from brokers? Also, the only way to really shut down brokers is to not sell to them. I find it hard that will happen because too many companies are money hungry but don’t understand that in the long run it will make us all less money
Clarence Cox
01:04:23
You are so right Larrry
Jeff Goldwasser
01:05:24
Chris , we have a BANY member who is owed considerable $$ and received an e-mail from them explain their difficulty to pay them now.
