Well known in the industry, Teo has been recognized as an Ambassador for the Transit, Coach and Busing Industry and, with Wajax, has been a participating member of the Ontario Motor Coach Association (“OMCA”) for over 30 years.

“It was a pleasure to meet the Honourable Caroline Mulroney. Transportation is such an important industry in the Canadian economy and I’m proud of the work we do to support it here at Wajax.”, said Teo.
