Switzer-CARTY Transportation is recognized as a Community Leader through its investment in expanding local news coverage. Thanks to its participation in the Community Leaders Program we are able to enhance areas of content that were underserved in the past. Switzer-CARTY Transportation proudly supports Coping and stories about the resources, tools, and programs that can help people in our community overcome today's challenges.

Switzer-CARTY Transportation was incorporated in July 2011 by Jim Switzer and Doug Carty. Both Jim and Doug have extensive transportation experience in general, and in school busing in particular. Doug and Jim believed there is a real opportunity in the school bus industry to create value for customers by delivering safe, secure and on-time transportation through dedicated professional employees which the company cares for and treats with dignity and respect.

Switzer-CARTY Transportation purchased the School Bus Division of Parkinson Coach Lines of Brampton, Ontario in September 2011, starting with 58 buses transporting approximately 5,500 students for the two Peel School Boards. Today Switzer-CARTY transports over 96,000 students for 23 public and private school boards every day, and has earned the reputation for excellence in on-time service delivery, keeping children safe and secure each and every day.

Switzer-CARTY is the fastest growing privately held school bus company in Ontario and more importantly, the highest regarded school bus company for its superior customer service and how it treats its valued employees. As the company expands across Ontario and beyond, a relentless focus on people and customers will ensure continued success.
