C&J Bus Lines Named METRO’s Innovative Operator of the Year

Posted on January 17, 2014

TORRANCE, Calif. — METRO Magazine chose Jim Jalbert, owner of Portsmouth, N.H.-based C&J Bus Lines, as the winner of its inaugural Innovative Motorcoach Operator of the Year.

C&J began in 1968 as a shuttle service that ran stretch checkered taxi cabs between the seacoast of New Hampshire and Boston’s Logan Airport, following that same model right up until 1981 when Jalbert’s father died.

After he purchased the company from his mother, C&J began operating motorcoaches around the latter part of 1983 and became part of the Trailways system in 1988.

Metro Magazine and LCT Magazine are both owned by Bobit Business Media and provide coverage of the charter and tour and motorcoach industries.
