Capital Trailways has been considered a leading member of the bus industry for decades. Founded over eight decades ago, the company was originally heavily involved in scheduled service. With a location in Alabama, Capital Trailways was sitting at a major crossroads in the Trailways network. As a result, the company participated in thru routes that extended to Miami, New York and San Francisco. In more current years, Capital Trailways and its long-time sister company Colonial Trailways made the transition to a modern charter operation but still maintain some scheduled service.
