2018 is an exciting year at Trobec's Bus Service, as it is marking the 80th year in business for our company. In 1938 Tony and Frances Trobec, with the help from Tony's uncle, purchased a school bus for $2,100. The Trobec's purchased the bus so that the students of the St. Stephen area could continue their education beyond the eighth grade to Holdingford Schools. The company continued with one bus until an additional bus was purchased for student transportation to Cathedral High School in St. Cloud.
In 1956, Mr. Ed O'Connell of District 742 in St. Cloud approached the Trobec's asking them to submit a bid to transport students from the St. Joseph/Collegeville area into St. Cloud to attend high school. After obtaining the bid, the Trobec’s were joined in the business by Tony's brother, Joe. Trobec’s continues to flourish in the school bus business, serving the St. Cloud and Sartell School Districts. For over 45 years, Trobec’s provided inter-campus shuttles between Saint John's University and the College of St. Benedict.
Trobec’s purchased their first motor coach in 1963. At the time, they ran primarily daytrips
in Minnesota to ball games and other activities. In 1981, Trobec's received interstate authority. This authority was upgraded in 1993 and now, Trobec’s Bus Service, can venture to 49 states including Alaska and Canada.
In 1982, Tony and Frances' three children, Tom Trobec, Betty Trobec and Emily Gohman took over the business. Tony Trobec passed away in August of 2004 and Frances in November 2009. Tom and Betty remained hands on, in conjunction with the exceptional staff, mechanics, and drivers. In 2006, Tom Trobec retired. Betty was an intricate part of the business until her death in April 2016.
Tim Schubert started with Trobec’s Bus Service in 1985 as a driver and mechanic. Today, he is the CEO and President. Tim and his daughter, Bethany, currently run the business together.
Today, Trobec’s Bus Service continues to strive to be the very best. We pride ourselves in our safe, clean, reliable equipment and professional drivers. We continue to work in a manner that puts safety first at all times because that is our number one priority. When you choose a motor coach, you are choosing one of the safest means of modern transportation. We work hard every day, consistently to be a leader in safe transportation.
