There are those moments that make us extremely proud to provide excellent charter bus service. Being trusted by the brave men and women of our nation’s armed forces to provide military charter bus transportation is definitely one of those moments.
“It is an honor to be trusted to provide our nation with military charter bus service,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ President & CEO, Steve Busskohl. “I am so proud of our operations, driving and maintenance teams. This project was handled with precision.”
Arrow Stage Lines was trusted to provide charter bus service for 1,400 brave personnel. 29 Arrow Stage Lines’ motorcoaches traveled nearly 82,000 miles from Ft. Riley, KS to Irwin, CA. Each overnight charter bus schedule required multiple drivers to ensure safety, and comfort for all passengers.
This required multiple resources from nearly every one of the company’s 13 nationwide locations. This project included 49 drivers from 9 different Arrow Stage Lines’ locations. These drivers performed over 68 motorcoach exchanges without any issues or delays in service.
On-time performance was crucial. Each motorcoach was early to each scheduled departure at Ft. Riley, KS. Arrow Stage Lines, the only company in the nation to offer an on-time promise, conducted the schedule with accuracy.
“I am so proud to help serve our nation’s armed forces,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “It is incredible to see our team pull together and execute such a big project so efficiently.”
No mechanical interruptions delayed the service. The Arrow Stage Lines’ maintenance team ensured that every charter bus that was deployed was in top mechanical condition. Each and every Arrow Stage Lines’ passenger arrived safely and comfortably.
“Maintenance teams, from Arrow Stage Lines’ locations played a big part in the success of this military charter bus project,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ Director of Maintenance, Gene Wordekemper. “Efficiency is key on our team, and this is a prime example of the difference quality maintenance can have on an overall trip.”
Arrow Stage Lines has provided more than just military charter bus service in the past. The company has been trusted to provide motorcoach service to the Secret Service, high-profile political personnel, and is often trusted to provide relief in times of crisis were transportation is necessary.
