Our taxes help Fund government services

Taxpayers for Wise Transit Spending is an alliance of Bus and Motorcoach companies based in the state of Maine. Many of us are decades-old family businesses, and all of us pay significant local, state and federal taxes. We have the strong support of the American Bus Association, the United Motorcoach Association, the New England Bus Association and the Business Coalition for Fair Competition.

We recognize that direct competition from the government, which we fund with our tax dollars, is a fact of life. However, if government competition results in more expensive and less efficient service, it is our opinion that taxpaying businesses should have the chance to do a better job.
