The Buckle family has a rich history in the busing industry dating back over multiple generations. Wilfred Buckle purchased his first bus at just 19 years of age in Labrador following after his father Samuel Buckle who operated school buses for many years. Wilfred would eventually move to Corner Brook and form Buckle’s Busing in 1990 as a small home-based operation with just two school bus contracts serving the Western School District. By 1994 Wilfred branched out and began offering a coach charter service with the concept of a high level of customer satisfaction.
This approach was met with success as within a few short years Buckle’s Busing expanded operations to include 5 coaches and 15 school bus contracts.
Today the company, now known as Buckle Charters, is owned and operated by Wilfred’s sons Adam and Ashley who continue the family business maintaining the strong relationships and reputation that has been developed over decades of service.
