Just outside the crosshairs where Interstate 30 and Interstate 40 converge, Little Rock Tours and Travel has built a new dumping facility complete with mechanical services. The address is 3100 Interstate 30, and the facility is actually within 3 minutes of five different interstates… including I-30, I-40, I-630, I-440, and I-530.
New I-30 Motorcoach Facility Opens near 5 Major Interstates
“Talk about easy on and easy off the interstate… any of them,” says Cary Martin, owner of Little Rock Tours. “We recognized that a number of coaches were not stopping to see the sights in our great city, in part, because there wasn’t easy access to a dumping facility in Little Rock. We want motorcoach operators to visit, and stay awhile.”
Little Rock Tours, a daily sightseeing, group tour, and charter company, moved to the new Interstate 30 facility in downtown Little Rock in 2006. But it took the company more than two years to open the facility to other operators. The 13,800 square foot facility is located next to Ryder Transportation Services, which is at the Roosevelt exit, off Interstate 30 near downtown Little Rock.
“The move not only improved and made our current operations more efficient, but it will help tourism in Little Rock and Arkansas in general, “said Cary Martin, President and CEO of the company. “We work with out-of-state motorcoach operators every day planning their itineraries. As it is now, they can’t wait to get up the road to Branson or Memphis where they can easily dump or perform maintenance on their buses. We intend to aid operators in this capacity, so that they can plan their stays longer and see everything our state has to offer. The facility will make us a ‘motorcoach friendly’ city.”
Little Rock Tours’ fleet has grown tremendously since the company first started in February 2003. Little Rock Tours now has vans, mid-size buses, as well as eight full size 56-passenger motorcoaches available for charter. In addition to its daily sightseeing tour, the company is also a full-service receptive operator and an outbound tour company. For more information call (501) TOUR-BUS (868-7287) or 1-800-933-3836.
