History of Jefferson Lines

Jefferson Lines, operated by Jefferson Partners L.P. in Minneapolis, Minnesota, is the second-largest fixed-station bus company in the U.S. It was founded in 1919 along the Jefferson Highway, a historic route from Canada to Louisiana.

In 1966, it expanded by acquiring Crown Coach. Facing bankruptcy in 1990, it was later sold to a group led by Norwest Equity Partners. After acquiring Jack Rabbit Lines in 2000, Jefferson Lines grew significantly in the 2000s, taking over former Greyhound routes. The service to Winnipeg was cut back in 2010. In 2013, it expanded to the Minnesota Iron Range.

As of 2018, the company serves 13 states, employs around 210 people, and operates a fleet of 75 buses. Jefferson Lines is a member of several associations, including the American Bus Association.

In 2021, it was voted the best transportation company in Minnesota.
