Through its luxury motor coach charter service, Academy Bus, the largest privately owned and operated ground transportation company in the United States, recently completed a busy and active second half of 2022, providing transportation services and support for many of the Eastern Seaboard’s largest events.

“Over the years, Academy Bus has become a trusted partner of many of the largest events in the eastern United States. Whether it’s NCAA or professional athletic teams and their support staff, runners, Special Olympians moving participants, event volunteers or fans, we move them safely and efficiently across some of the East Coast’s largest metropolitan areas,” said Francis Tedesco, CEO of Academy Bus. “As we embark on the college bowl season, we are especially proud of our successful track record supporting the transportation needs for college teams.”
