Parkinson Coach Lines is a family business founded in 1946 in Snelgrove, Ontario by Harold Parkinson. The company was acquired by the Murrays in 1953; another family with generations in the bus and coach business, going back to 1922. The company hasn't strayed far from their roots in Brampton, Ontario and started running the predecessor to Brampton Transit in the 1960s. They further expanded into school buses in the 1960s and coach tours in the 1970s.[1]
