Edgar L. Holloway
The Holloway Story
Our founder, Edgar L. Holloway, entered the school bus
business in 1936 with his first school bus working in
Wicomico County, Maryland. In 1945, at the age of 17,
his son, Richard E. Holloway entered the business as a
school bus driver. From then until 1952, they maintained
a farming operation, a general merchandise and
grocery, and a school bus operation.
In 1954, after returning from 2 years service in the
United States Army, and having married, Richard and
Marion applied for and were accepted as school bus
contractors with Wicomico County's Board of Education.
Richard and Marion Holloway
In time, the family grocery store eventually closed. In
1975, the business expanded when Richard Holloway
purchased Salisbury Transit, a local company that
provided transportation to physically and mentally
challenged students for our local school district and
private schools. That same year, the name was
changed to Holloway Transit, Inc.
In the years since, Holloway Transit has continued to
grow, becoming one of the largest school bus
contractors with the Wicomico County public school
system. In addition, we have ongoing business with
several private and parochial schools.
In 1993, Richard and Marion's son Jeff joined the
firm. The business continued to expand, and in the
fall of 2003, with the purchase of our first coach bus,
we formed the subsidiary company, Holloway Tours.
Now a family man, Jeff looks forward to the day
when his children may elect to continue the Holloway
We continue to grow and remain committed to
providing quality service throughout the Mid-Atlantic
