Stock Transportation acquires student transportation division of McLellan Transportation
Stock Transportation Ltd, a leader in student transportation in four provinces, has announced that it has completed the asset acquisition of the student transportation division of McLellan Transportation Co. Limited in Kirkland Lake, Ontario. With this acquisition, Stock will gain 30 new drivers and operate 23 additional routes in Kirkland Lake.
"We see this as a great fit and expect a seamless transition as McLellan's customers, the Grande Rivieres Board and the Tri-Board, are already serviced by Stock Transportation," said Kim Worster, Stock Transportation's Chief Operating Officer. "We welcome the McLellan employees and look forward to providing the families they serve with the same safe, reliable student transportation for which Stock is known."
McLellan Transportation has been a trusted name in student transportation in this area since 1923. "We are pleased to have Stock Transportation take over the business from us, they are professionals in our industry and our drivers and students will be in good hands" said Andy Wright, owner of McLellan Transportation.
For now, the McLellan buses will continue to operate under the McLellan name. However parents will eventually see Stock Transportation buses driving their children to and from school. The acquired McLellan division will operate out of their existing bus facility under the leadership of General Manager Luc Charlebois and Regional Manager Greg Shand.
