The 100% expensing provision of the American Jobs Act will enable Ray Land to purchase 20 additional motor coaches for his business, creating work for the company that builds them, and jobs for more drivers in Florida. In addition, Land says “the new tax provisions are great. In particular, we more likely than ever to hire the long-term unemployed.”
Ray Land has always exhibited a passion for getting people where they need to go. As one of the youngest motor coach operators in North America and founder of Fabulous Coach Lines, Land has dedicated himself to providing his customers with a safe and “fabulous” travel experience.
Land’s experience in the motor coach business began early in life when he began planning field trips for his middle school classes and then later planning trips throughout high school for local community organizations. Continually underwhelmed by the operating conditions of the motor coaches he chartered, Land decided he could provide a more enjoyable and reliable travel experience by operating his own motor coach. At the age of 17, and with a little help from his parents, Land did just that, purchasing his first motor coach over the Internet. Fabulous Coach Lines was born.
Since founding the company in 2004, Land has grown Fabulous Coach Lines into a regional leader that now boasts a fleet of 30 motor coaches. “My team and I constantly strive for excellence, and most importantly, make keeping people happy our number 1 goal.” In keeping with this commitment, Land contacts every customer after their trip to get vital feedback on ways to improve his company’s travel experience. It is this type of steadfast commitment to customer satisfaction that has underscored Fabulous Coach Lines’ development and growth. Land has also demonstrated an ability to adapt to changing times. In June 2009, Land launched his “Breezeways” service line, providing a safe, enjoyable, and more economical travel experience to groups unable to afford his Fabulous Coach line. It soon became the preferred travel option for school groups, youth camps, and family reunions, providing Land with a steady revenue stream.
