CharterUP, the first fully integrated online marketplace for charter buses, has been recognized for rapid business growth by the Atlanta Business Chronicle as a 2023 Pacesetter.
The award celebrates the 100 fastest-growing privately held companies in metro Atlanta. To be eligible for the award, companies must be privately-held, based in Atlanta and achieve a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent.
CharterUP has experienced more than 100 percent annual growth and surpassed an annual revenue run rate of $150 million in 2022. In October, CharterUP secured $60 million in Series A funding in a round led by Austin-based Tritium Partners.
With the ultimate goal of allowing residents of every zip code in the U.S. (from Boston to Las Vegas charter bus rentals) to book a bus through the marketplace, CharterUP is in a stage of hyper-growth.
“I am thankful that the Atlanta Business Chronicle has provided this opportunity to reflect on the growth and the roots of CharterUP,” CEO and Founder Armir Harris said. “Our growth is possible because we’ve built a team willing to push the status quo, and this award is a testament to their hard work and dedication. We are also grateful for our growing network of bus operators and, most importantly, the customers that trust us with their group transportation needs.”
In a Forbes article last month, CharterUP was recognized for its role in helping the motorcoach industry at-large recover from the pandemic. CharterUP’s tech-enabled platform empowers bus operators with data and a steady lead source to help them scale their businesses, even through times of uncertainty.
CharterUP is always looking for partners to help drive the future of group travel. We’re seeking team members who are revved up and ready to use technology to make a positive impact, and bus operators who are willing to join us in the effort to raise the bar for service standards in the industry.
