CWTSatoTravel joins Trailways as preferred affiliated partner



Fairfax, VA – August 31, 2018 – CWTSatoTravel, a division of Carlson Wagonlit Travel, has joined the Trailways Transportation System, Inc., as a preferred affiliated partner. It has been the largest provider of global travel management and fulfillment services for the U.S. military and government agencies for nearly 70 years.

“Our Trailways carriers take pride in transporting members of the military and civilians in government service. Affiliation between CWTSatoTravel and Trailways is a natural fit for both of us,” said Eva M. Hotard, Trailways President and Chief Executive Officer.

The CWTSatoTravel Group Travel Services (GTS) team offers one-stop shopping for group travel procurement and coordination. Available 24 hours every day, the GTS team simplifies the process for motorcoach subscribers submitting offers of service to obtain military and civilian government business.

According to Ronald Ivester, GTS Program Manager, Military and Government Markets, “The GTS online travel tool enables us or our client travel management officers to competitively procure, to track and monitor their motorcoach charters. The tool also provides motorcoach subscribers with access to receive charter requests, input offers of service, track and monitor bids and receive market intelligence reports, all without start-up fees.” Motorcoach carriers receive requests specifically for their defined service areas. The process is automated from request to award and includes monitoring of all awarded moves until their final destination. The GTS team also assists with coordinating the payment process.

Other departments within CWTSatoTravel offer additional travel and transportation-related services and resources, from negotiating hotel rates to planning vacations and meetings to providing online booking and travel and expense management solutions.

Founded in 1936, Trailways Transportation System, Inc., is a network of approximately 65 independently owned and/or operated bus and motorcoach company locations in North America and parts of Europe. Each company adheres to the standards required by the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Through its Affiliated Partner Program, Trailways enables suppliers and travel partners to network with its company owners and other top decision makers, for their mutual benefit.
