UKCOA offers special membership price
The UK Coach Operator Association (UKCOA) is offering up to 16 months’ membership for the price of 12. The offer means any operator who joins the trade body now will see their membership run until the end of February 2025.
The UKCOA says it is the only trade association run by coach operators solely for coach operators. It represents their members on key national and local issues, including PSVAR; vehicle technology and the journey towards zero carbon; fuel; coach infrastructure in town centres and other key destinations; driving standards and employment.
