McCarter Transit began in 1974 when Jon and Beverly McCarter purchased the Blackhawk School District school bus contract from Blair Ferguson. In 1975, the Beaver Falls School District contract was purchased from James Rhodes. The New Brighton School District was added in 1977.
In addition to providing school bus transportation for three local school districts, McCarter Coach & Tour expanded to Motorcoach travel in 1978 to offer these services: individual vacation tours to destinations throughout the United States and Canada; charter service for groups to travel to their favorite destinations; and setting up package plans for groups to travel together on sightseeing tours.
McCarter Coach & Tour owns 15 deluxe motorcoaches (most have extra leg room because we leave out a row of seats), 80 school buses and 25 minivans.
All equipment is replaced on a rotating basis. All of our coaches are wide-bodied, with climate control, reclining seats, DVD player, TV monitors, public address system and lavatory facilities. Our motorcoaches are MCI Renaissance. The Renaissance coach boasts a circular entrance stairway, improved sound and cooling systems, 4 additional step down seats for better viewing out the front windows.
McCarter Coach and Tour has the highest possible safety rating based on the company's safety record and adherence to Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations.
McCarter Coach & Tour is a member of the American Bus Association, the United Motorcoach Association and the Pennsylvania Bus Association.
We hope that this year you will look at our new tour listing and find a trip that prompts you to join us in visiting our beautiful country.
We invite you to stroll up our circular staircase to sit in one of our comfortable seats, with more leg room than any other coach company in the area.
McCarter Coach and Tour is owned and operated by us. We are not affiliated with any other national or international company. Not many motorcoach operators in our area can make that claim.
Our friendly staff will be glad to answer any questions you may have about our tours. We are committed to offering the highest possible quality tour at the lowest possible price.
We hope that those of you who have not traveled with us before will give us a try, and we thank all of our customers who have been with us again and again.
