Linda Burtwistle, President and CEO of both Coach USA and Megabus, agrees sometimes you choose to work in the coach bus industry, other times it chooses you. Once there, you are either driven to succeed, or your team would never let you get behind a wheel.
Linda held pivotal roles that gave her insights into many different facets of the business. According to Linda, “It is no longer enough to just run a bus business; we have to be smarter about our business development activities, and smarter about technology”. Also, when you’re as big as Coach USA, you need to have uniformity in the way you approach things, the way you maintain your buses, the way you train your drivers.

Some people try fresh approaches to old tasks, while others break the monotony by deepening their relationships with clients or colleagues, Sue Shellenbarger writes.
