Before Wolf's Bus Lines, there was Wolf's Garage where Grandfather Edwin and Grandmother Leah Wolf operated a service station and sold new and used trucks. During the late 1930's their son, Paul and his wife Vada acquired the business and later changed the name to Paul's Garage.
A lone bus began making its rounds in 1939 transporting children to and from Blackberry School in nearby Latimore Township. By 1946 Wolf's had expanded its fleet to provided shuttle service for apple harvesting crews at the Musselman plant in Biglerville as well as a commutation service from Gettysburg to the Navy Depot in Mechanicsburg.
In 1947 Paul received regulatory authority to operate a charter bus service. It was then that Wolf's Bus Lines was born at the family homestead located in York Springs, PA.
Through the acquisition of a local carrier Adams Transit, limited motorcoach charter authority transferred. Three Flxible (sic) coaches for charter service were part of the deal, setting the trend for Wolf's to begin shifting their focus from line haul service to motorcoach trips and tours.
By 1962, the Wolf's made the commitment to provide the comfort of rest rooms and air conditioning in all of their charter coaches. By providing the top of the line safety and comfort, the Wolf's assured their clients would keep coming back.
In 1970 Wolf's obtained interstate charter and tour business from points within Maryland and West Virginia with acquisition of Antietam Transit. By 1977 Paul chose to sell his business to his sons, Edwin and Bradley. The sons began construction of the present headquarters soon after their purchase.
Federal deregulation of interstate commerce took effect in 1982. This enabled Wolf's to pick up or drop off passengers in any state so long as the motorcoach crossed state line and did not provide local carriage.
This opportunity greatly expanded Wolf's group tour capability so that today Wolf's Bus Lines is able to offer service to popular destinations such as New York City, Washington, D.C. and daily runs, during the summer, to Atlantic City.
The early years developed an enduring pattern of customer loyalty. Jeannette Burgett of Carlisle and Shippensburg University have been booking tours and charters annually for over three decades. The Wolf family understand that people appreciate reliable and friendly service, and are committed to practicing their motto daily.
