Donald Trump Debuts New Tour Bus
Buses will also be decorated in honor of other New Yorkers of distinction as well, Gray Line said.
Trump attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the bus with his likeness, accompanied by Miss USA Rima Fakih. The ceremony took place in front of Trump Tower, of course. Afterwards, Trump and Fakih hopped on the red, double-decker bus for a ride.
Gray Line says while Hollywood has its "Walk of Fame," New York now has its own mobile monument to commemorate New Yorkers. Others are expected to be honored each month.
Said Trump, "I am pleased to be chosen by Gray Line New York for their 'Ride of Fame' campaign. By providing tourists with a safe and informative way to see this great city in the best way possible, Gray Line is a very significant part of the New York City tourism industry. I love New York - and this is a great honor. Thank you, Gray Line."
For their part, the tour company said Trump "epitomizes the grand nature of New York City and has added so much to its society and culture."
Gray Line has offered tours in New York since 1926.
