About Birnie Bus

Birnie Bus Service, Inc.
Birnie Bus Service, Inc.

Birnie Bus Service, Inc. was established in 1947 as a small transportation company based in Rome, New York. Initially operating with three school buses, two motorcoaches and a station wagon, the company has grown and expanded, not only in size, but also in scope and diversity.

In 2017 the Birnie operation was acquired by Krapf School Bus with headquarters in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Like Birnie, Krapf is a family-owned and operated transportation business which began operations in 1942 with two school buses. Today, Krapf is one of the largest privately-owned providers of contracted school bus transportation in the nation, with operations in Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. The company has a fleet comprised of more than 2,800 school buses and commercial vehicles, and employs more than 3,500 individuals. In addition to pupil transportation, Krapf provides public and paratransit transportation and motorcoach services.
