Jefferson is a global, multi-faceted bus manufacturer. Established in 1919 as the Jefferson Motor Company, the organization was founded by James J. Jeffers and initial operations were based out of St Louis, Missouri. Initially manufacturing motor coaches, the company soon began producing transit buses for both urban and suburban markets. In the 1950s, they expanded into wheelchair lift-equipped vehicles focused primarily on Para-transit services. In 1972, Jefferson became part of American Motors Corporation (AMC). After AMC's acquisition by Renault in 1979, production continued with assistance from Morrison Knudsen who purchased the division in 1986 and subsequently changed its name to 'Jefferson Bus Lines'. The brand has since been acquired several times over the years – most recently being acquired by Prevost Car Inc., a Volvo company operating under the Volvo Group North America umbrella in 2011. Today, Jefferson manufactures high quality full-size and mid-size buses for school districts nationwide as well as producing mobility solutions for para-transit services across North America and beyond.
