Comprised of 15 leaders in the aviation, bus, law enforcement, maritime, port, rail, and trucking sectors, the ACHT was established to address human trafficking concerns and all those affected by it. Alongside the other committee members, Waters will leverage his expertise to provide policy recommendations and strategies to the Secretary of Transportation on how to combat this crime.

“I am honored to have been appointed to the United States Department of Transportation Advisory Committee on Human Trafficking,” Waters said. “At Coach USA, we strive to make a positive and lasting impact on the communities we serve, and the mission of this advisory committee closely aligns with those goals. I take this responsibility seriously, and I look forward to collaborating with my fellow committee members on trafficking awareness and prevention initiatives.”
