Beginnings – A Bus Company Is Born

Smith Coaches Inc was founded in Price, UT in 1978 by Michael Edward Smith as a bus company used to shuttle Utah, Carbon, and Sanpete County miners to and from work in the area’s coal mines. Although the company ran only 3 mine buses, Smith’s vision for future began to take shape.
