Student Transit History
Ray Fey Sr. and his son Fred Fey purchased the city buses from NSP in 1939. At that time, they owned and managed several other city bus companies including the cities of La Crosse and Winona. Ray Fey Jr. joined the company after World War II, and the school bus system grew significantly with school consolidation.
As the Eau Claire area grew and management of the other facilities became more difficult, they decided to focus strictly on the Eau Claire area. Shortly after, the Eau Claire Area School District approached the Feys and asked them to take over their bussing. Over the years, school buses replaced city buses.
In 1975, the Feys sold the city buses back to the City of Eau Claire and focused strictly on school bus transportation. The bus company evolved from Eau Claire Transportation Company into what is now Student Transit - Eau Claire, Inc.
In 1982, Phillip "Flip" Fey succeeded as President and Ray Fey Jr. as Vice President.
Now a fourth generation family business with Ray and Jim Fey at the helm, we strive to provide safe, efficient, and economical transportation to the families in the Eau Claire and Altoona school districts.
As a family operation, our philosophy has always been to treat employees and customers like part of the family.
