Howard Bus Service


Getting students safely to and from school has been at the core of Howard Bus Service for more than 55 years. Since 1955, when Ron Howard began driving children to school between Charleston and Athens, his company has continued in its commitment to providing reliable school transportation throughout Eastern Ontario. Today Dale Howard continues to run the family business, expanding to include limo services and charters. We are a full service transportation provider, dedicated to ensuring that anyone in search of a ride is catered to.

For a destination near or far, our luxurious and modern 56-passenger highway coaches ensure that you will arrive at your destination safely and relaxed. We are licensed to all points in North America.
