Unknown drivers for EMTA or Erie Coach Company

Bus drivers for EMTA or the Erie Coach Co.

Unknown Drivers for EMTA or Erie Coach Co. about 1966

I have a handful of photos of men who drove bus for the Erie Metropolitan Transit Authority (EMTA) or its predecessor, the Erie Coach Company. A friend saved these items from being tossed into the trash. Most of the photos are labeled on the back, but these were not. 

EMTA took over the Erie Coach Company around January of 1967. The old Erie Coach Company's garage faced State Street between Second and Third Streets.

Mystery solved!

  1. Oh my gosh I remember taking the bus and Harry Gambill was the bus driver. He was a very nice guy.
