2.1 Company Ownership

Bob and Mary Wilson are co-owners of Valley Airporter.

2.2 Company History

In April 1998, three 14-passenger vans were converted to 11-passenger vans with rear luggage area and Valley Airporter began. Valley Airporter plans to travel over 2,000 miles per day, transporting over 20,000 passengers.

To accommodate those passengers, we plan to purchase three brand new 20-passenger replacement buses. All buses are equipped with seat belts and high back reclinable seats for comfort and safety. The schedule has continually expanded over the years from three times a day weekdays only, to ten trips each weekday and nine trips on Saturday and Sunday, 365 days per year.
