The Atlantic City Bus Operators Association entered the scene in 1981 so that private bus operators would have a more unified voice on matters of collective interest in the Atlantic City Marketplace. Over the years with no active New Jersey Association in place, ACBOA’s role expanded beyond the scope of Atlantic City and in January 2004 the association expanded to become a regional organization known as the Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association. The Greater New Jersey Motorcoach Association promotes safe travel and to that end that association has taken many proactive steps, including safety workshops for bus drivers, co-sponsoring the Atlantic City Roadeo, driver excellence award program, NJDOT inspection workshops etc.
