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.

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 
family business.

We continue to grow and remain committed to 
providing quality service throughout the Mid-Atlantic
