Our Story

G&L Student Transportation started its long history as the Gross Equipment Company, originally founded by William P. Gross in the 1950’s.

William got his start in business buying and selling bus chassis and later became a dealer for Carpenter and Thomas franchise.

In 1965 William acquired a bus company’s contract for student transportation in the Owen J Roberts School District and subsequently formed Gross School Bus Service in 1968. This was his start of a long career dedicated to the safe and efficient transportation of students. Over the years Mr. Gross grew the business by securing additional transportation contracts with Great Valley School District, Conewago Valley SD, Muhlenberg SD, Reading SD, Brandywine Heights, Fleetwood School District, Governor Mifflin School District, Oxford School District, Wyomissing School District, and Upper Perkiomen School District.

In 2010 he diversified the company by contract to form four other companies under Gross Equipment Company – Gross School Bus Services, Oxford Transportation, Coventry Transportation, and Keystone School Bus Service.

In 2016, at age 90, William decided that it was time for retirement and sold the companies to Landmark Student Transportation.

Our Values

SAFETY:
All our actions are predicated on the safety of our passengers and employees. We keep our passengers and employees safe. Every time - and it's not something we're willing to compromise.

RESPECT:
We treat all individuals equitably. We treat others as equals, and we are considerate and polite. We create the solution that's right for the person and situation - cookie cutter solutions don't always make sense.

INTEGRITY:
We are honest with our customers and one another. We deliver on our commitments. Commitments matter. And we always tell the truth about how we're making out with the commitments we've made. You can't have trust without honesty.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT:
We care, support and give back to the communities in which we operate. We're a part of the communities we work in and we take responsibility for doing our part as good citizens and neighbors.

TEAMWORK:
We collaborate and support one another to achieve our goals. We support one another and help where we can - it's by working together that we can achieve our goals.

ACCOUNTABILITY:
We take responsibility for our actions. We focus on finding solutions and getting results. We believe in what we do. And we stand up and take responsibility for our work and the commitments we make. Solving problems well is central to our responsive service.
