The motorbus industry occupies a vital place in the everyday life of the American public. In rural areas and in the thousands of towns and cities across the nation, it provides personal transportation for many purposes, carrying more persons daily than all other public modes of transportation put together. The building and evolution of this industry provides a fascinating story of invention and entrepreneurism–for it evolved from individual effort of thousands of people risking their time and capital in the hope of creating a profitable business.
To promote the bus industry, and seek to be of continuous interest to both the general public and the bus enthusiast, the Museum of Bus Transportation (MBT) has partnered with the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum to have a permanent Museum of Bus Transportation Exhibit area within the AACA Museum. This permanent exhibit allows each organization to display all forms of motor vehicles and related memorabilia to better educate and entertain the hobbyist and general public.
