First Class Travelers LLC. History Page
The creation of First Class Travelers started well over 47 years ago, when a little boy from Brooklyn, New York (with Southern values) would get into trouble with his parents for wanting to see the buses outside of the doors at the Port Authority bus terminal.----------------------
I found my passion at a very young age. Countless amount of times I traveled by bus during the summer months between New York City and South Carolina to visit relatives. Upon arriving I would always have an exciting story to tell my grandparents about the bus I was riding on and interacting with the driver.
As I got older I wanted to serve my country, so I joined the US. Army. Approximately 1 year before ending my Military career, I took on a part time job with a local bus company in Killeen, TX. After many years serving in the Army I decided to end my Military career with an Honorable Discharge so I could pursue my passion. I also left the local bus company to join a much larger bus carrier to gain more knowledge of the operations and functions of a bus company. I then became a Motor Coach Operator for one of the largest carriers during that time. As the years passed I wanted to learn more so I became a Diesel Mechanic. Having;
April 2014 I created First Class Travelers LLC.
I’ve been riding on buses for most of my childhood life, and if there’s anyone who can tell you the difference between a good or bad bus trip. I would be that one! That’s why I put my heart into the creation of First Class Travelers LLC. I want to ensure that “ALL” of my valued riders are treated with respect, courtesy, and as a First Class Traveler! That prompt me to name my Company First Class Travelers….
A very good childhood friend B.T.W once asked me, why do I love buses and being around them so much, I replied to him; “I like seeing passengers smiling faces when they’ve reached their destination, and thanking the driver for a wonderful safe trip. I enjoy seeing passenger’s baggage arrived with them and not being lost, delayed or damaged. The joy of seeing the faces of people meeting their love ones when they get off the bus. That’s the joy I get”. As a child I knew buses was going to be my life. All the things I experienced in my childhood and much more!
