History

Our school bus division Suffolk Transportation Service, Inc., has been in business for over 65 years as a school bus transportation provider. Our public transit division Suffolk Bus Corp. has been in business for over 65 years as well. The Company was purchased by John A. Corrado in 1955. Prior to 1955, Mr. Corrado ran the school bus division of Varsity Transit in Queens, NY, with over 1,000 drivers and vehicles under his supervision. Varsity Transit was a division of Green Bus Lines, a company that Mr. Corrado’s father and father-in-law helped establish over 80 years ago.

Today Suffolk Transportation Service, Inc. and Suffolk Bus Corp. are owned and operated by Mr. Corrado’s son John J. Corrado, who has been the President of the Company since 1995 and has essentially grown up in this business. John J. Corrado is a graduate of the University of Michigan (BBA 1986) and is a Certified Public Accountant. After a career in accounting with Deloitte Haskins and Sells, John J. joined the family business in 1988 as Treasurer.

The Company’s fleet has grown from 35 school buses and 15 transit buses in 1955 to over 1,600 school buses and 273 transit and paratransit buses today.
