EARLY BUS AND AUTO STAGE LINES

NEBRASKA


EARLY CERTIFICATES OF CONVENIENCE AND NECESSITY

Beginning in 1927, intrastate bus service was regulated by the Nebraska State Railway Commission. Information from annual reports is available between 1927 and 1929.

Listed are bus companies which ceased operations in 1927, many of which might have never received a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity. Bus routes listed as introduced in 1927 might have existed earlier, prior to regulation. Not all sales or discontinuances of routes are certain.
