KMs Driven Daily
STARTING FROM THE FAMILY FARM
Family owned and operated since 1961, Sharp Bus Lines began their story as many family businesses do, modestly and at home. Don and Mary Sharp began their business operating out of their family farm in Glen Morris, Ontario. What was once a 3-fleet operation has grown into a multi-divisional organization which spans Southern Ontario, transporting 70,000 passengers daily.
As a family owned business, we understand the importance of safety, and make that the top priority in everyday operations. Our values lie deeply ingrained in trust, reliability, and integrity, and these are reflected in every facet of how we operate.
MEET OUR TEAM
Sharp is driven by a passionate and dedicated leadership team. With decades of combined experience in transportation, our executive team shares the common vision of providing a safe and reliable ride for all of our passengers, as well as a commitment to delivering excellent service with the predominant focus on safety and innovation.
Exposed to every facet of the business over the past 30 years, including driving, shop and office duties, Bill has advanced throughout the company until becoming President in 2014. Bill has managed to lead a management team dedicated to trust, reliability and integrity, and provides strategic insight into investments in people, products and other capital to meet the needs of our children and their safety.
