Indian Trails, Inc. is an inter-city bus company based in Owosso, Michigan, with offices in Romulus in Greater Detroit and in Kalamazoo.[2]

History[edit]

Indian Trails was founded in 1910 in Owosso as the Phillips-Taylor Livery Service, whose main business was transporting cargo to and from Durand Union Station and the surrounding Shiawassee County. Beginning in the 1910s, the company expanded to include intercity offerings, and by the 1930s served much of southern Michigan. Many of its buses ran along US 12, whose nickname, "the Old Indian Trail," would eventually become the name of the company.[3]

Indian Trails offers charters, casino trips and regular fixed-route daily service.[4] In 2006 Indian Trails assumed responsibility for a number of routes in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula which Greyhound Lines had discontinued.[5]

Indian Trails' daily scheduled bus service is part of Michigan's Intercity Bus System recognized by the Michigan Department of Transportation.
