Knoxville’s Premier Transportation, a market leader in customer safety and driver welfare, has been named 2016 Operator of the Year by the Tennessee Motor Coach Association (TMCA).

“At Premier Transportation, customers and employees are our top priorities,” said Nick Cazana, owner of Premier Transportation. “We use safety features and the latest technology to make our customers’ trips the best they can be. Our driver programs ensure that our employees are rested, alert and ready to complete their routes.”

With Tennessee operations in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Greeneville, Premier Transportation’s fleet is 100-percent seat belt-equipped, which will become federal law for all buses and coaches by the end of 2017. Premier’s buses have GPS tracking systems so administrators can locate them in the event of an emergency. The tracking system encourages a proactive safety environment for the Department of Defense-certified fleet.
