The American Bus Association (ABA) is trying to woo airline passengers who are frustrated by flight delays this week to take long-distance buses to reach their destinations.

The Washington, D.C.-based ABA said airline passengers should consider other modes of transportation for their trips – namely buses.

“As flight delays become more frequent and get longer because of the government’s sequestration and inability to reach an agreement on the nation’s finances, there’s a much better alternative that sitting in a delayed airplane on the ramp waiting to take off or holding before the pilots are cleared to land,” ABA said in a statement. “Ride a motorcoach.”
