Trailways acquires Southern Trailways of Alabama

Posted on February 2, 2010

Fairfax, Va.-based Trailways Transportation System (Trailways) extended its service reach in the U.S. Southeast region with the addition of Southern Trailways of Alabama as its newest charter and tour provider.

 

Based near the Alabama/Georgia border in Jackson’s Gap, Ala., Southern Trailways of Alabama brings a quarter-century of experience and service expansion to both Team Trailways and its parent company, Capital Trailways of Alabama in Montgomery.

 

Frank Montgomery, III, president of Capital Trailways, said his company’s purchase of a former quality competitor augments both his company service capabilities and the Trailways brand.

 

“We purchased a motorcoach company that has been serving central Alabama as a friendly Capital competitor for over two decades,” said Montgomery. “Southern has specialized for many years in high-end package tours for groups, and we are continuing to carry that tradition forward under the able management of Bill Tilton, former owner of the company he operated as Southern Transportation Leasing Inc.”

 

Montgomery said Capital Trailways has been a Team Trailways member since 1938, and was for many years a scheduled carrier. It is now also, primarily, a provider of charter coach services, though it does continue to offer some line haul carrier services. With merger of the two companies, Capital Trailways will open offices in Columbus, Ga., to better serve the west Georgia market.
