Press Release Body = CHICAGO, IL, September 15, 2005

The BusBank®, the Chicago based company that arranges charter bus services throughout North America, has been on the scene in New Orleans, the Gulf Coast and Texas from the outset of the recovery and relief effort.

BusBank Engineers Tuesday Night Rescue From New Orleans’ Hotel
On Tuesday night, guests from the Sonesta Hotels in the French Quarter literally “escaped” the perilous situation after the chain’s concerned CEO engaged The BusBank from his office in Boston. Upon taking the call, a very resourceful BusBank Account Executive worked tirelessly to arrange the rescue. After locking up two buses from a
nearby BusBank charter bus operator partner, she coordinated logistics with the hotel’s management and set up the plan. When the rapidly deteriorating situation in New Orleans put the movement in jeopardy, The BusBank representative engaged tourism officials and the state police to help clear the way. Late Tuesday night, sheltered by a police escort, two buses crept through the darkened streets of New Orleans and escaped the besieged city. The guests were then taken to Houston International Airport via I-10, one of the few highways open.
