The origins of the company date back to 1860, when Irish immigrant Edward Kelley started a part-time hauling business in Connecticut. Well before the age of the automobile (or truck or bus), the hauling was done by horses. Kelley’s horses were also supplied to the Torrington Fire Department. Trucks eventually replaced the horses, and over the years the company branched out to three divisions—coal/fuel, livery and busing. Three generations of the Kelley family owned and operated the business, and the trucking and fuel/coal divisions eventually were dissolved. The family focused its attention on the remaining division--passenger transportation.
In 2005, after 145 years of continuous operation, the Kelley family sold the business to John and Corinne Nason. John Nason has 30 years in the passenger transportation business, with extensive experience with transit contracts, paratransit operations, and transit project start-ups around the country.
