Arrow Stage Lines Receives ABA’s Green Spirit Award

Arrow Stage Lines was recently awarded ABA’s (American Bus Association) Green Spirit Award for 2017. The Green Spirit Award was presented to Arrow Stage Lines for their environmentally friendly practices in both operations and motorcoaches.  The award was presented at ABA’s Annual Meeting & Marketplace 2017 event which was held in Cleveland, OH January 14-17. The award was presented on January 15th at the Cleveland Convention Center during an all-operator breakfast, sponsored by Motor Coach Industries, Inc. The presentation ceremony was attended by over 800 operators to help showcase Arrow Stage Lines for their commitment to “Going Green.” “Going green has never been something we do just to look good,” said Arrow Stage Lines’ COO, Luke Busskohl. “In both our operations and motorcoaches, we see it as our duty to be as environmentally friendly as possible.” To enhance Environmental stewardship at Arrow, specifically their shops, they have progressed in many ways over the past few years. One example is the spill kits we have implemented at all locations. These spill kits are in place to recover any unexpected leaks that could be bad for the ground, fuel, and many other areas. We use a coolant recovery machine, along with an oil recovery machine, to complete the process. This insures that there is no spilling or loss of fluids while we are changing them, and then recycling those fluids. “What many people don’t realize is that the scheduled maintenance on all of our vehicles, otherwise known as preventative maintenance, makes a huge difference.” said Arrow Stage Lines’ Director of Maintenance, Gene Wordekemper. “We ensure that there are minimal breakdowns, emission leaks, or fluid issues with all of our motorcoaches.” Another example of...

Making a Difference, One Charter at a Time

Making a Difference, One Charter at a Time

Arrow Stage Lines is a company that strives to be the most innovative and passionate charter operation out there. But more importantly it is a company that is focused on change, and they are proud to partner with YOU to be making a difference in every charter booked. Arrow Stage Lines is committed to working in and towards a better world, and with your help; we are doing that right now. Arrow Stage Lines is a company focused on customer service, reliability, excellent drivers, and helping our customers experience the journey. While that is the main business focus, they also are focused on changing lives and being a part of creating a better world. That is why Arrow Stage Lines is focused on getting clean water to the world. So why “water”? The answer is simple. 1 in 10 people in our world live without clean water. That equates to around 663 million people. Some may think that a number like that isn’t too big considering there are billions living in our world but in fact, 663 million people is more than double the population in the United States. Can you imagine living without clean water, and being afraid of drinking it because it may make you sick, or even worse, you fear for your life each time you take a drink? In 2016, Arrow Stage Lines rallied around the idea of creating the Hero Project. The vision of the project was aimed at helping create a positive global impact. The Hero Project, focused on helping provide a better quality of life for those less fortunate, selected Charity Water, an international nonprofit organization, as the 2016 charity of choice for...
