Trans-Bridge Lines' coaches are modern, comfortable and driven by experienced drivers. Coaches undergo frequent preventative maintenance at their facilities, which are staffed by expert technicians 24 hours a day.
Trans-Bridge Tours, an affiliate company, offers one-day, multi-day and casino tours, as well as, air & cruise vacations.
Founded in 1941 by A. J. Ferraro and other members of his family, the company operated local transit service as well as charters and tour excursions from Port Colden, NJ to Easton, PA, serving Washington and Phillipsburg, NJ and eventually Allentown, PA. Ferraro founded his Phillipsburg-based lines when he took over the New Jersey Interurban Coach Company.
Delaware River Coach Lines, Inc., an affiliate of Trans-Bridge Lines, began in 1943, operating local transit service between Easton and Phillipsburg. Then in 1969, Trans-Bridge Tours, Inc., started as Holiday Tours, conducting retail tours through the United States and Canada and also offering airline and cruise packages. Trans-Bridge Lines and Tri-City Coach Lines, an additional family-owned charter coach company based in Bethlehem, merged in 1981 and moved to a new facility in Bethlehem's Lehigh Valley Industrial Park. The second generation now owned and managed the companies. Business grew in 1991 when Trans-Bridge Lines acquired West Hunterdon Transit Company and in 1997 acquired Jim Thorpe Transportation (Lehigh Valley Motorcoach).
The companies are now in the family's third generation of ownership and management. Tom JeBran serves on the GNJMA Board of Directors, and is a past president.
