Our business was founded over 60 years ago by Franklin and Doris Smith. The basic principles in 1951 were honesty, integrity, excellence and personalized service. Even in today's hectic, competitive world, those founding principles continue to drive this company. It has always been a family business. The current owners are Craig and June Smith, son and daughter-in-law of Franklin and Doris. They took over the company in September of 2010. Craig grew up in the bus industry and has spent his entire life driving, maintaining, buying and dispatching buses. June retired from a 30 year teaching career to assist in the operation of the company, and they both look forward to meeting new people and broadening their knowledge and skills in this new endeavour.
