Sainte-Claire, QC, April 26, 2012 – The saying “good things come in threes” can be applied to Trinity Transportation Group, where the focus is threefold: providing modern vehicles, an outstanding safety record, and the best transportation value in Michigan and beyond.
Trinity, a premier transportation company providing coach charter service to the eastern half of the U.S. from its southeastern Michigan headquarters, got its start over 30 years ago as a sedan and van service provider.
Its line of vehicles expanded through the years as motorcoaches and school buses were added. Today over 300 Trinity vehicles are plying the roadways of southeastern Michigan, including three 2012 Prevost H3-45 coaches that bring the coach fleet to 29, the majority of them Prevost.
General manager Tracy Akers explained that when current Trinity president Jerry Sheppard launched the company’s coach division in 2000, he sought a “superior product” to build the fleet. That made the choice of Prevost an easy decision. The Prevost coaches have lived up to expectations, carrying tour and group passengers that include numerous school, sports, and seniors organizations to destinations throughout the eastern half of the United States.
Trinity’s location near Detroit also brings in corporate business and high profile entourages—including press corps—that accompany political visitors to the area.
The family-owned and operated organization has experienced steady growth since Jerry Sheppard acquired it in 1995. Today it boasts over 500 employees, a new dispatch office with a 24/7 digital dispatch system, and luxury motorcoaches equipped with state-of-the-art GPS tracking systems. Trinity has also developed and implemented an extensive, two week long certified driver training program that all of its drivers, new or experienced, must complete.
With its top-quality fleet and attention to detail, it’s easy to see Trinity successfully sailing through the next three decades.
