Join Indian Trails! We are a team of 180+ professionals—drivers, mechanics, sales consultants, and administrative staff—working together to deliver the ultimate in safe, efficient group transportation.  Since 1910, Indian Trails has done just one thing—transportation—and nobody does it better.

Indian Trails offers competitive pay and excellent benefits

  • medical insurance
  • paid holidays
  • vacation
  • a 401(k) plan 

Our training programs are second to none. The majority of our positions are full-time—a practice that builds a strong workforce and reflects our investment not only in the people who work here, but in the future of our company, as well.  We work hard, but we also promote a healthy work-life balance.  (When you’ve been family-owned and operated for over 105 years, it stands to reason you’d be family-friendly, too.)

Indian Trails is headquartered in historic downtown Owosso, Michigan and operates from this and two other modern facilities. One is located in southeast Michigan between Detroit and Ann Arbor. The other is located in Kalamazoo, Michigan and serves all of western Michigan and northern Indiana. Each of the three facilities serves as operations and maintenance center from which drivers and coaches are dispatched on their daily assignments.
