The owner of transportation and tour company DC Trails and more the 30 other motorcoach companies recently sent a plea to Senator Mark Warner (D) of the WH Task Force on COVID-19, asking for financial assistance for the private transportation industry to weather the pandemic.

The letter, signed by John “Jay” Sneed of Prevost Car Inc., chides the government for its lack of assistance to the private bus industry.


Recently, Congress approved a $2 trillion stimulus package with $100 million earmarked for U.S. transportation companies, including every passenger mode of transportation except private buses.



In the letter to Warner, Sneed urges the government to consider adding more to the fourth installment of the relief package currently being considered. He specifically emphasizes the need for grants and loans explicitly earmarked for the motorcoach industry, much in the same way that was done for the airline industry.



DC Trails is one of the United States’ premier charter and tour bus companies, serving Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia with more than 60 quality motor coaches.
