HOUSTON, Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- "The basic services that charter buses offer have not changed dramatically over time, leaving limited room for substantial growth in demand for such services," noted researchers in a July 2014 report by IBIS entitled: Scheduled and Charter Bus Services in the U.S. Tony Harris, president of Shofur, the premier website for booking charter buses, is changing all that through a digital, mobile website that connects consumers, travel agents and event organizers to over 5,000 buses in more than 200 locations including Atlanta Charter Bus, Houston Charter Bus, Austin Charter Bus and Los Angeles Charter Bus.
"Shofur has been described as a Hotels.com for motorcoach, mini-buses and charter buses," says Harris. "What once took hours to research and stacks of paperwork to fill out can now be done in minutes. We are also able to reach out to more bus owners in the network."
Shofur launched in 2011 with a platform developed by Harris and his team. Central to the company's growth has been a commitment to customer service and an interest in expanding opportunities for bus owners and providers. According to the IBIS report, "Charter bus services serve very specific functions that often cannot be easily done via other methods of transport." It's that exclusivity that Harris has built Shofur around. The company's growth has led to a need for employees and contractors interested in working in a high-energy, entrepreneurial atmosphere. The company has locations in major cities including Atlanta Charter Bus, Houston Charter Bus, Austin Charter Bus and Los Angeles Charter Bus.
"We continue to look for ways to influence the charter bus industry via growth technologies and proven revenue generators. It's important that our team understands Shofur's vision, but is not afraid to interject new and unique ways to build on that vision," says Harris.
Shofur launched Shofur Market this past week, a website offering the most advanced digital reach for companies and individuals interested in buying or selling buses and limousines. It is the only actively engaged marketing platform for the charter bus and limousine industry, tapping into an influential group of active transportation owners, social networks and digital communities for quicker conversions. There is a low cost fee to post a vehicle, utilize the integrated marketing and sales platform or sell a bus or limo on Shofur Market. Additional paid enhanced marketing opportunities are available for a premium.
