In 1938, Elwood Kobussen aka “Grandpa Goldie,” a dairy farmer and trucker by trade, was chosen by the Kaukauna Board of Education to transport out-of-town students to and from the Kaukauna High School. Kaukauna Bus Service Incorporated was born that year and started with red, white and blue buses. The fleet grew, and in 1976, Kaukauna Bus Service became Kobussen Buses, Ltd., eventually expanding into motorcoaches and offering chartered group trips throughout the US and Canada. Now that Kobussen is a member of Trailways, our customers have access to the Trailways network for the rare need to keep a group moving when a bus or driver cannot continue. In 2012, Kobussen received the Contractor of the Year award from “School Bus Fleet Magazine”.
