Through its member companies, Trailways Transportation System blazes bus trails across North America. Trailways has a network of about 85 franchisees, primarily in the US and Canada but also in Germany and the Netherlands. System members, who collectively operate more than 4,500 vehicles under the Trailways brand, provide scheduled-route (intercity) transport, sightseeing and travel planning, charters, and tours. About 2,000 of the Trailways vehicles are luxury-styled, full-size motorcoaches. Most of Trailways' scheduled-route companies have agreements with Greyhound Lines, North America's primary intercity bus company, to provide long-haul service for their passengers. Trailways was founded in 1936.
