Roger's Transit

Acquired by PAT on March 3, 1964

Roger's Transit was started in April of 1961 by two former Harmony Short Line drivers after Harmony closed down operations. The initial operation of Roger's was exactly like its final operation using 2 1946 ex-Harmony Lines TD3206 coaches,  one ex-Harmony route and with approximately the same running times as Harmony.

Roger's paint scheme was somewhat unique as both buses ran with full painted on advertisements for Duquesne Brewing Co. The original contract was for one year but the contract was never renewed nor were the buses ever repainted after the contract expired.

One of the smallest companies taken over by PAT, the Roger's buses were stored and maintained at a local gas station in Blawnox. This arrangement was maintained until 1963 when Roger's rented space in the former Harmony garage.

In its short existence, Roger's only had one incident of service interruption due to freezing weather.  

At the takeover, PAT did not renumber the former Roger's coaches and both were scrapped on April 28, 1964 due to their poor condition.
