Fullington Trailways Mobilizes Midnight Bus Convoy to Texas for Hurricane Help


PRESS NEWS RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 8/29/17

Fullington Trailways in Pennsylvania urgently deployed 20 buses to Texas in the middle of the night August 28th to help with urgent transportation needs near Houston resulting from Hurricane Harvey.   The crisis required Fullington’s drivers to mobilize fast.  The first group of buses left at 2:30 AM on Monday for an targeted arrival in the staging region near San Antonio, TX by midnight the next day, Tuesday, August 29th.

The process began last week when Fullington Trailways was contacted and requested to be “on standby” following the weather forecast as Hurricane Harvey targeted the gulf coast of Texas.  Then, this past Sunday August 27, 2017 at 10:00 PM, the status was changed to Active, according to Mike Dull, Fullington’s Director of Operations.  “We are very proud of our drivers for their quick response and while this is what we do, we’re especially concerned about the urgent help needed for immediate relief efforts in Texas.  With our fleet, we’re going to be transporting  more than 1,000 residents displaced from their homes for as long as we’re needed”, said Mike.
