What We Do

The Anchor Promise
Anchor Transportation seeks to accommodate our customers with bus transportation services that meet their exact need and provide a refreshing experience for a fair price.

Motorcoach Travel is the safest mode of transportation in America according to government statistics. Anchor Transportation helps to insure safety by always having a safety first attitude in all aspects of the company. Our approach begins with our hiring practices and continues in our employee training to always put Safety First! Here are a few of the many programs in place:

  • Continuing education classes for all motorcoach operators
  • Random Drug Testing
  • Customer Awareness of DOT laws
  • Background checks for all employees
  • Annual Recertification

Getting our passengers to their destination safely and efficiently is what Anchor Transportation does best. We operate the most dependable fleet by having two maintenance facilities located in Middle Tennessee and Northern Alabama. Our onsite service bays and full-time factory trained mechanics make it possible for us to schedule regular maintenance of our entire fleet. In fact, we require it. We are so well respected in the industry for our service work that many area groups and companies bring their privately owned buses to us for service.


We want to make sure that our passengers are safe and comfortable when traveling with Anchor Transportation. Our full size motorcoaches have many modern conveniences to make travel by coach comfortable and enjoyable. Below are the amenities on our coaches:

  • Reclining seats with plenty of leg room
  • Adjustable foot rests
  • Individual reading lights
  • On board restroom
  • Overhead racks for carry-on bags
  • Climate-controlled air conditioning and heating systems
  • Huge, tinted picture windows for clear vision
  • Large, weather-proof luggage compartments
  • Heavy duty shocks for a smooth ride
  • DVD players with 6 monitors throughout the coach
  • PA systems
  • Direct TV (optional in some coaches)
  • Wi-fi 
  • 110V Plugs at each passenger seat (optional in some coaches)
Anchor Safety
Motorcoach travel in general, allows all passengers to engage with each other, do work if they choose, and keeps groups together with a driver who is focused on only one thing – getting the group to their destination safely. At Anchor Transportation, we take safety to the next level.
DOD Certification
Anchor Transportation is certified by the Department of Defense (DOD) – a higher level of safety certification that only 10% of motorcoach carriers qualify for, that certifies us to carry military personnel.
Our onsite service bays with full-time mechanics enable us to assure regular and on-going maintenance of our entire fleet. As part of the DOD certification process, the Department of Defense inspects the maintenance logs and systems in detail to confirm that all of our equipment is well maintained.
Driver training and safety management are another important factor in motorcoach safety. In order to remain active, our drivers must undergo safety and customer service training and submit completed paperwork after every trip. We require that all drivers wear a uniform and interact professionally with passengers. By law, drivers can only log 10 hours of driving in a 24-hour period. If a group is hiring a motorcoach for a trip lasting more than 10 hours, most companies would send the second driver on the bus and expect that they will sleep while not driving. We do not believe a driver can get a good night’s sleep sitting up on a bus. We send a replacement driver ahead to an agreed-upon meeting place where they sleep overnight in a motel to assure they are fresh and ready to continue the trip. This is a more expensive solution, but we believe a value cannot be placed on your safety!
We are able to track our motorcoaches by GPS on the internet. This feature is especially useful for school groups or other organizations that have large numbers of concerned parents who want the point person aware of the location of the motorcoach at any given time. This system is so unique, it is one of the few recognized and funded by the Department of Homeland Security.

Anchor Transportation provides routine maintenance and repair services for all types of motorcoaches. Our factory-trained service technicians are the best in the area. We have the expertise to diagnose and repair your motorcoach quickly, and with the area’s largest parts inventory for MCI motorcoaches, we will get your coach back on the road.
