All:

Just learned that, after 72 years, BIEBER has abruptly stopped all service, and is now out of business, due to declining ridership and rising costs.

The company is now, sadly, another "Fallen Flag", one that had served New York, as well as other areas.

Though, certainly the buses will go on to new owners, it is still a sad day for another of the "old companies" that has now passed into history.........

Sidenote:

You can find an excellent article about BIEBER in today's READING EAGLE (sorry, I am unable to provide link; there is also a 1971 photo showing the ribbon-cutting ceremony in 1971, next to a BIEBER Eagle)

On a related note, I just learned that MEGABUS may soon cease to exist.

Also, STAGECOACH just sold off COACH USA (recall RED & TAN, ROCKLAND COACHES, HUDSON BUS) to a private equity group; that's all I know for now.......
