Starr Tours began its long history in 1947 with two transit buses that provided route service between Trenton and Hightstown, NJ.
Tours for groups and individuals were introduced in the 60s with the New York World's Fair and several new and exciting long distance vacation and sightseeing bus trips. When Atlantic City casinos revolutionized the motorcoach industry in the late seventies, Starr was the leader and its fleet grew larger. The 80s and 90s gave Starr travelers more than motorcoach transportation with the introduction of fly and cruise vacations. Starr is now a major regional full-service transportation company, offering all phases of tour and travel services, such as, group bus charters and tours, public bus tours, and other related services.
They can't emphasize it enough, Safety always comes first at Starr. Starr's motorcoach drivers, and operations department are held to the highest possible standard and undergo the most rigorous training and regular retraining.
In 1969, Gilbert Sussman, Starr's founder, passed away and the business was eventually taken over and run by Gil's son-in-law, Alan Glickman and Gil's son, Mitchell Sussman.
Today, Alan and Renee Glickman along with Peter and Sandy Borowsky, the Glickman's daughter and son-in-law, operate the business along with the help of over one hundred valued employees. As the 4th Generation begins to work at Starr (albeit on a summers-only time frame while the kids are still in school), Starr ownership is dedicated to providing safe, comfortable, professional motorcoach transportation throughout the mid-Atlantic states and beyond.
Starr is always looking into the future and has partnered with Rally to grow the overall motorcoach market by offering technology for crowdsourced transportation to events like Rallies, Concerts, Sporting Events, College Break Shuttles, and much more. Starr's long-range plan is to continue to be a leader in the bus tour and charter industry, offering safe, top quality services.
