Liberty @ A Glance
Since its meager beginnings in 1953 as a 4 vehicle operation, Liberty Lines has grown through merger and acquisition to become one of the largest privately owned transportation companies in New York State. Today, the company, which is headquarted in Yonkers, operates out of 2 state of the art facilities, employing approximately 610 union and 140 non-union employees and operating a fleet of 350 vehicles from 25 foot passenger vans, to 60 foot articulated and hybrid buses.
In conjunction with the Westchester County Department of Transportation, Liberty Lines provides safe, reliable and efficient local bus transportation services throughout the County on 59 routes. Each year, the company transports 30 million passengers and covers over 10 million miles.
Regarded as the most efficient and well run carrier in the New York Metropolitan area, the company’s steadfast commitment to excellence and efficiency is well known. Liberty is a past recipient of the prestigious American Public Transit Award which recognized Liberty Lines as the most efficiently run system of its size in North America.
“Liberty Lines Transit is dedicated to levels of maintenance and service that are unmatched by most transit providers in the industry, and certainty by peer agencies in the New York Metropolitan area.”
