Landmark finalizes GG&C Bus Co. purchase

Landmark Student Transportation said Tuesday it completed its purchase of GG&C Bus Co. Inc.

The company’s purchase of GG&C from previous owner John Lenzner was announced in late 2015.

According to a news release, privately held Landmark, headquartered in Aurora, Ontario, operates school bus companies in Canada and in the United States, providing contracted student transportation services.

The local operation, which began in 1967 and served the Washington and Trinity Area school districts, will continue to operate under the GG&C name. Lenzner, who purchased the company in 2004 from Wendell Gower and William Clark, grew the service area for the company, and added contracts with Avella and McGuffey school districts as well as California University of Pennsylvania in 2010 and the Linsly School in Wheeling, W.Va., in 2014.

Landmark, which has 130 to 135 employees at GG&C, said it plans to expand services, particularly in the area of public charter services, and plans to add employees.

In addition to its home-to-school transportation services, it currently provides large- and small-group transportation to sporting events, concerts and conventions, as well as shuttle service for wedding guests, festivals and other large events. It also offers “Jackpot Flyer” runs to Rivers Casino on the second Monday and last Wednesday of each month, with four stops in the Washington and Canonsburg areas.
