Our History

From humble beginnings in 1976 with two taxis and two station wagons, Burlington’s Attridge Transportation has grown over four decades to a flourishing family business with more than 1,400 buses, 36 coaches and six locations.

Founder Jim Attridge had lost his previous job and was living in his mother’s basement and driving a taxi when he started the company. The province closed schools designated specifically for disabled students in the mid ‘70s and they were being integrated into regular schools. Taxis were the preferred method of sending children with different abilities to school and this presented an opportunity for Attridge to build the business by providing a service that larger bus operators weren’t.

For the first decade, Attridge’s niche was providing transportation for special needs passengers in taxis and small buses for the former Wentworth County School Board. Attridge vehicles were equipped with the latest design features to accommodate disabled passengers. From there, it expanded to providing regular home to school busing.

The company outgrew its Waterdown office in 1990, when it opened a Burlington office and a garage to repair and maintain its vehicles. Ten years later, it opened another office and depot to serve Peel Region. In 2007, it began providing services to the Toronto area. In 2010 it built a new head office and maintenance facility in Burlington. Then it built a new Toronto office in 2014 which is one of the most modern school bus facilities in the industry. In 2018 Attridge expanded into Dufferin County after winning an RFP.

Jim’s son Glenn joined the company more than 35 years ago. It’s now a three-generation business, as Glenn’s son James is Attridge’s Vice President.

Attridge bought its first motor coach and created Attridge Coach Lines Inc. in 1999.

While they primarily serve the Golden Horseshoe, Attridge is fully licensed and insured to travel throughout North America. It's 37 motor coaches can be found on the road anywhere from Thunder Bay to Florida and anywhere in between. The company provides 35,000 charters a year.
