RHA Coach – Introducing a New Annual Membership for Coach Operators.

We’re bringing together the expertise of our coach policy team and the knowledge we’ve gained from supporting operators of commercial vehicles for over 75 years to introduce a new annual membership designed specifically for coach operators.

The coach industry has been hit hard by Covid-19 with cancellations, social distancing and reduced demand from events and tourism seeing operational mileage significantly down. With 90% of the UK fleet parked up, we know the sector requires urgent support, operational guidance and tailored solutions to support business recovery.

As the trade association for road transport operators, we are committed to driving business on our roads and have a wealth of coach expertise and a proven track record in delivering policy support to drive change that benefits our members.

Our experience of working with government to lead change puts us in a unique position to support coach companies moving forward.

Who Is It For?

The RHA Coach Membership is designed entirely to meet the needs of coach businesses and is available to operators of all sizes.

As a member you will gain access to the same intelligence, support services and resources we offer to all RHA members but with the added benefit of sector-specific support for coach businesses, all of which has been designed to help you to maintain continuous and effective management.
