Today, 5.14.2019, along Merrick Road, Wantagh, a Fullington Trailways bus surprised me, mixed in with the Academy buses and a Coach U.S.A. A few others are mere white. I just learned from the company history that in this regard Fullington is a family name from Clearfield, Penna. The company dates from 1908!

Probably will see a few more outliers as well.

It's not just busy season, it's really busy season with a driver shortage - they're getting help from everywhere.

About Fullington, Fullington Trailways took over the scheduled route system from Susquehanna Trailways a couple of years ago. They operate vestiages of Edwards Motor Transit division of the former Continetal Trailways.

Since I live hereabouts, lots of Academy buses. This is a bus foamers dream.

2012 was the last year of using transit buses for the shuttle.
Now it's all over the road coaches, mostly Academy. (All Photos Aug. 26, 2012)

Academy also did a lot of the shuttle buses for the Northern Trust tournament (ex Barclays) in Paramus last summer.
