Martz Group Return To Service
Martz services are available to all travelers, we are still operating a modified schedule from main terminals only. Please visit https://martztrailways.com/schedules/ to view the most up to date schedule.
To protect customers and staff, Martz Group is implementing the following practices:
“Martz Group has received national attention for its early adoption and use of electrostatic disinfecting sprayers in their cleaning process. In addition, Martz Group has worked with Motor Coach Industries, the Des Plaines, IL-based manufacturer of its coach fleet, to develop an innovative, enhanced air filtration system that utilizes ultraviolet light to reduce viruses, bacteria and mold by up to 99.9% in the air and on the HVAC coil. This technology, which Martz plans to install on its buses, will also assist in building ridership confidence as service returns. “Martz has been a leader in motorcoach and transportation innovation for over a century,” Mr. Scott Henry said. “We’re excited to work with our friends at MCI to find innovative and creative solutions for our customers.”
MCI and its sister company, NFI Parts, collaborators on the added air filtration technology, are proud of their longstanding relationship with Martz, one of the leading operators in the motor coach and transportation industries. “Longtime partnerships and collaboration with companies like Martz helps keep MCI and our customers on the leading edge of developments and ensures motorcoach transportation remains among the safest modes of transportation,” said Brent Maitland, MCI vice president of marketing, product planning and pre-owned coaches.
