El Camino Trailways named to Top 100 'Fastest Growing' list

Posted on October 18, 2010

El Camino Trailways, a San Francisco-based motorcoach service provider with operations in California and Nevada, announced it was named one of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Transportation Services Companies by Inc. magazine.

For four consecutive years — 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 — El Camino has been recognized for its extraordinary growth - more than 30 percent compounded annual growth rate - achieved during each of the past four years, while the industry's overall, annual growth rate was negative in 2008 and 2009.

The company's growth has also achieved it prominent position on Inc. Magazine's Top-5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America.

Founded in 1962, El Camino Trailways is one of the most well-known and established motorcoach operators in the San Francisco Bay Area. The company was acquired by a Silicon Valley based Investor Group in 2005 and since then has experienced dramatic growth. In 2008, El Camino acquired a Nevada-based motorcoach operator to help extend its services reach into the Reno-Tahoe market.
