About Us

 You’ll appreciate our high level of quality, service and experience.


August 2000 saw the birth of a new motorcoach company in the Ft. Wayne area. Excursions Trailways was begun by Thomas Bazow and Patrick O’Brian. They saw a need to provide quality motorcoach service to the Ft. Wayne area. Their mission is to, “Give excellent customer service by providing clean, well maintained coaches and courteous, professional drivers.”

Since the Fall of 2000, Excursions has grown from one coach to a fleet of fifteen luxury Prevost, Van Hool and Temsa motorcoaches. Each coach is equipped with: CD/DVD players, reclining seats, and clean restrooms. Some coaches can have one or two tables added if desired by the group. We also have one coach that is wheelchair accessible.


How to choose a bus company.


Just because the coach or the price is appealing from the outside doesn’t mean the company is offering the same comforts on the inside. Make sure your decision is based on a few simple – but critically important facts about what goes on inside the company; day-to-day and year-in, year-out! Knowing what a for-hire transport company looks like on the inside can make a huge difference in the quality, services, and more importantly, the safety and security of your group’s next travel event. Start by taking a look at the company’s current and federally documented safety service records. This is available to all travelers seeking for-hire motorcoach transportation.

Where, How, and What. It’s easy to obtain, through comparative government ratings, information to help you locate and review critical data of a for-hire passenger transport company’s current as well as historical safety and management oversight practices.

Visit the United States’ Department of Transportation (USDOT) website:   Passenger Carrier Safety

This federally maintained website allows visitors to review data by searching for any legally registered company using any of the following searches: Location (company’s base of operation), Type of Vehicle (Passenger bus), Name (The transportation company’s name.) After a search is completed, you can review all the data the USDOT has collected for that particular company.


Safety Is Our #1 Priority.

Excursions Trailways has been certified by the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and authorized to carry the men and women serving in our Military. Less than 10% of the more than 3,500 US Motorcoach companies are authorized to transport our Service Men and Women.


We Stuff a Bus!

For the past five years Excursions Trailways has donated a bus each year to the Associated Churches and Franciscan Center at Thanksgiving time.  People drop off non-perishable food items, medical supplies, paper towels, shampoo, etc.  We are happy to be part of this excellent event!


The reason I first chose Excursions is the same reason that I continue to use Excursions Inc., they run a professional, first-class operation!“   Merrill Phillips, Cruise Director, Land Cruise, Inc.
