More About Southeastern Stages Inc.
Southeastern Stages was formed in 1933 by a merger of three independent motorcoach companies. Georgia Motor Lines operated over routes from Atlanta GA to Augusta GA and Milledgeville GA. Garden City Coach Company operated its scheduled service between Augusta GA and Savannah GA. The third member White Stage Lines provided service between Augusta GA and Charleston SC. Prior to the merger; the three companies had struggled to build their businesses due to the difficulties posed by dirt roads the absence of advertising and limited passenger traffic. Combined the new company began to grow.
The two founders of Southeastern Stages A.C. (Lon) Shipman and J.W. (Jake) Hughes devoted their efforts to making the new company a major participant in the growing intercity bus industry. The eventual interlining of passengers with Greyhound Lines and other regular scheduled carriers at various transfer points provided an expanded service to travelers and the company began to really grow.
Today Southeastern Stages Inc. operates regular scheduled service between Atlanta GA Augusta GA Columbia SC Charleston SC Myrtle Beach SC Fayetteville NC Greenville SC and Asheville NC and points in between. This computes into the operation of 2.7 million miles annually. The company has nationwide operating authority and provides charter services throughout the United Stages and Canada.
