ORLANDO, Fla. — Gregg Moulton, previously operating under the company name Orlando Select Transportation and later as a partner of Signature Transportation Group out of Chicago, has branched out on his own again as owner and CEO of Select Transportation Florida.

Five years ago, he started his industry journey as Orlando Select Transportation with the intention of creating a small premium transportation service.

“Our growth was off the charts from the beginning because of our amazing industry partners and local clients,” Moulton said. “We decided to take it to the next level partnering with Signature Transportation Group and Sal Milazzo, expanding our footprint. When we decided to go back on our own, it was important for us to be reminded of where we started this journey. We also wanted to take this opportunity to accomplish our goal of becoming the premium luxury provider throughout the state of Florida.”

Both Signature and Select are experiencing huge growth spurts that haven’t allowed them to use their intended resources to balance off-seasons. “As we discussed the future, we had different paths and decided to go our own way. We remain close friends and help each other where we can,” he said.

Select will serve Orlando and surrounding areas and is also expanding to Tampa. There, they will operate in the local market down to Sarasota. Moulton said he has future plans for other cities but will focus on his current service areas for now.

The company’s fleet includes Cadillac XTS and Escalades, Chevrolet Suburbans, Mercedes S560, Grech luxury vehicles ranging from 14 to 39 passengers, and Van Hool executive 56 passenger motorcoaches. They also recently took delivery of four Volvo S90s as he sees them as a great replacement for the XTS. “The feedback from our clients on these vehicles has been amazing,” he said. All vehicles are black with leather interior.

As his company grows, he looks for ways to diversify the business. A newer segment the company is pursuing is shuttles for corporations and high-end hotel and residential properties.

Along with the new name comes a new building. “We started five years ago in a small 3,000 sq. ft office/warehouse. A couple of years later, we upgraded to a 10,000 sq. ft office/warehouse, creating a space where we could house most of our vehicles inside and host meetings for different associations and clients. Now, a few years later, we decided to take our fate into our own hands and buy real estate to build a property that checks all our boxes.”

The new building is 12 minutes from Orlando International Airport and sits on two acres with a 15,000 sq. ft office/warehouse and plenty of parking for their fleet inside and out. In addition, they secured an 18,900 sq. ft lot with an office in Tampa to allow for growth over the first couple of years. The property is located 10 minutes from Tampa International Airport.

“I started this company to service some clients who have been friends for a long time and create a place for my employees to feel proud of where they work and who they work for. If I can continue to do those things while we grow and extend opportunities for others, I feel like I’m meeting all my hopes and dreams. I would like to thank so many people who have been with us since the beginning, in addition to those giving us opportunities along the way. I am grateful to this industry of hard-working people who day-in and day-out allow Select Transportation Florida to continue to grow and provide opportunities for others.”
