Well, then, what is it?
Nada Bus, Inc., is based in Commerce (Los Angeles County). I found neither an explanation of the name nor a trademark filing, although I did find trademarks for Carba-Nada (reduced-carb pasta); Nada Nuff (a women’s clothing line based in Toronto); Nada-Chair (“The cure for terminal sitting”); and N.A.D.A., the National Association of Automobile Dealers, which owns the nada.com domain.
Nada Bus seems to do a lot of business ferrying passengers to Nevada casinos not featured in any of the Ocean’s movies, or even The Hangover. Judging from the web copy and the testimonials, it appears to be run and patronized by non-native English speakers. (“Nada Bus provide you the best service in the world.” “We will happy to answer for your question.”)
The company’s slogan, I’m sorry to say, is “Serving you with PASSION to make your trip memorable.” PASSION + long-distance bus trip = memorable in the worst possible way.
Still, “Nada Bus” has a certain existential allure, no?
