Sharp Bus Lines 60th Anniversary –
Message from the President
This year, we’re celebrating the anniversary of a business my family started 60 years ago.
When Sharp Bus Lines was founded in 1961, all employees were family members and we ran a humble operation consisting of three buses, in Glen Morris, Ontario. Through dedication and commitment to our employees and to the communities we serve, we have grown over the last 60 years to operating 12 divisions across Southern Ontario, serving 70,000 passengers daily.
Of course, what started with family has evolved to incorporate so many important team members who have supported in our accomplishments over the past six decades. As we’ve grown, so have our teams. It is these past and present employees who have made this milestone anniversary possible. I’m sincerely grateful to everyone who has chosen to be a part of our working “Sharp family”, and for your contributions to making Sharp what it is today: a trusted family company with safety at the forefront of everything we do. I am so proud of all that we have accomplished together.
As we look toward the future, I’m reminded that our goals are still aligned with those first established by my parents, in 1961: to put safety and our communities first, for it is their trust in us that has allowed us to enjoy 60 years of success. It is a true honour that the people of Ontario have continued to put their trust in us to get their children safely to and from school each day over six decades.
Thank you to everyone who has made our success possible over the years: our employees (office administrators, mechanics, management, driver trainers, drivers and monitors), and of course the communities, families and students across southern Ontario – this is just as much your celebration as it is ours. We are truly thankful to have had each of you “along for the ride!”
Happy 60 Years of Serving Generations and here’s to many more!
