Is It Time to Update Your Tour Bus Fleet?

Posted by Shayna Johnson on 8/18/17 12:00 PM

Knowing when to stop putting money into a bus and when to purchase a new bus can be a difficult balance. Buses can be either money makers or money pits for tour companies throughout the United States. Here's how to tell if you need to update your tour bus fleet this summer.

  •  Current Fleet Status

The biggest telltale sign that it's time to upgrade is the current condition of your fleet. Older buses or those with visible wear and tear should be replaced with newer models. Also, if you have buses that had more out of order days than days in service it's a good indicator that you should update your tour bus fleet.

  • High Maintenance Costs

The older your fleet, the higher the maintenance costs, particularly if your models have been discontinued because parts may become difficult to find. If you have noticed that your costs are beginning to rise, it might be worth investing in new tour buses.
