About Us

Smith Bus Company began in 1965 when Miles and Esther Smith began transporting students to Armstrong County schools of Elderton and Kittanning Township. From this humble start, Smith Bus has grown to provide transportation for students of five local school districts. Smith Bus has been transporting students to Blairsville since 1979, Homer-Center since 1980, and Derry Area since 1982. Smith Bus expanded operations to the Saltsburg schools in 1998 and to the Marion Center Area School District schools in 2009. Through the leadership of Miles and Esther Smith’s son, Randy, and grandson, Matthew, Smith Bus Company continues the tradition of providing safe, timely, and cost-effective pupil transportation.
