The Wheels Start Rolling

Birnie Bus Service is a family-owned and operated transportation company. The evolution of the company began in 1947 when Martin K. Birnie started to work with his brother-in-law, Martin J. Nunn, who owned a local funeral business. Mr. Nunn also had a small transportation company consisting of three school buses, two charter coaches, and a station wagon. From 1947 to 1953, Mr. Birnie worked with the buses.


Mr. Birnie

Mr. Birnie purchased the bus company and operated it as ``Martin K. Birnie.`` In 1960, Birnie Bus Service Inc. was incorporated and continued to grow.


Becoming Established

In 1964, Mr. Birnie and George Marsh became partners. They purchased Utica-Rome Bus Company and continued to expand their charter and tour operations. In 1973, Mr. Birnie sold his share of the company to Mr. Marsh. In 1973, Birnie Bus Service, Inc., made a dramatic change in size and focus becoming the major carrier for the Rome City School District, taking 80 percent of all routes and a five-year contract.


Charter Tour Expansion

In the fall of 1979, Timothy Birnie became a full-time employee leaving behind a teaching career. Once again, the team at Birnie Bus began to actively pursue the charter bus market. In 1982, I.C.C. rights to transport groups and tours to all points in the United States were granted to Birnie Bus Service. The charter field still continues to show strong growth.


Serving Individuals With Disabilities

Birnie Bus Service entered yet another growth market in August 1988. The company started a transportation program for the Rome Developmental Center to accommodate individuals with disabilities. This program provides stable income 12 months out of the year and comprises 32 percent of the company's annual revenue. More than 80 buses are dedicated to this growing market in several counties where services are provided by Birnie Bus Service, Inc.


Trailways System Venture

In 2008, Birnie Bus Service was pleased to announce its newest venture as an affiliate of the Trailways System.
