AMTRAN’s Value Proposition

Amtran helps individuals and strengthens our community.  Our bus service helps people get where they need to go.  We carry 500,000 people every year.  That's half a million bus rides on Amtran.

  • We help working people get to their jobs.

  • We help older people age in place instead of having to move out of their home.

  • We help people with disabilities maintain their independence.

  • We help college students get to class so that they can avoid the added expense of owning a car.
