WE Transport has been a respected Long Island school-based bus operator for more than fifty years.
During the past five decades, WE Transport has provided our Nassau and Suffolk customers, and more recently our Connecticut, Westchester and New York City customers with transportation for home-to-school, parochial, private, wheelchair-bound riders, other special-needs riders, and pre-school children.
Our dedicated staff works together with the safety and well-being of our riders in mind at all times and with this team spirit, we are propelled forward. Our customers have often referred to us as their “contractor of choice” as our concern for our customers, our riders, and their families are apparent in every way.
A culture of safety persists throughout our company. Our safety team is highly respected in the industry and have earned industry certifications attained by few. WE Transport places an emphasis on safety that is second to none and it is this dedication to the safety of our customers that sets us apart.
In 2020 WE Transport partnered with the Beacon Mobility family of transportation companies. Beacon Mobility is a people-focused organization with an unyielding dedication across all partner companies to support their core purpose of providing Mobility without limits: Transporting people to live, learn, and achieve. Beacon team members all across the country are united by our common core values of We care, We do the right thing, We collaborate, and We have fun.”
Generations of Safety
In 1957, with one blue Oldsmobile, Walter and Edith Marksohn began transporting children as subcontractors. They worked tirelessly sixteen to twenty hours a day. Through pure resolve and gumption, in 1959, they ventured out on their own, thus WE Transport was born. When Walter and Edie retired in 1990 they left the business in the capable hands of their children. Over the past 27 years Bart, Jerry, Helena —and grandson Brian — have grown the business into one of the leaders of the transportation industry on Long Island.
