CEO Spotlight – Annett Bus Lines, Tamra Annett


Annett Bus Lines began with a single bus and a big dream.  Eric and Norma Jean Annett founded the company in 1976 in Sebring, Florida with a belief that serving the traveling public would be both a rewarding and successful venture. That first motorcoach traveled 65,000 miles its first year and now, almost 40 years later, the company continues to grow.

By the high standard of excellence that Eric and Norma Jean set from the beginning, Annett Bus Lines has come to be one of the most respected motorcoach companies in North America.  From humble beginnings and one motorcoach in 1976, family tradition continues to drive Annett forward with a growing fleet of 50 Prevost coaches.

Today, Annett Bus Lines continues to thrive under family management.  In 2002, the company successfully made a transition to the 2nd generation of family ownership, with son Brian Annett taking the helm. In 2007, son David Annett also joined in ownership.

Annett Bus Lines has been known for its Quality, Safety and Reliability for nearly 40 years now. Our record stands the test everyday traveling in excess of 2.6 million miles annually.
