Welcome aboard!

M.L. Bradley Ltd. is a family owned and operated school and charter bus company that has been serving the local community for the past 47 years.

Founded by Morris Lorne Bradley in 1965, the business is now operated by his wife Joyce along with their daughter Kathleen and son-in-law Gord Both out of the company's offices on Frank Kenny Road in Navan.

Through the years, M.L. Bradley has prided itself on the quality and professionalism of its staff and drivers, many of whom have been with the company for over 20 years.

The company operates more than 75 buses covering 100 routes, all with a mission to provide transportation to school children in the "safest, most efficient and amicable way possible".

All driver candidates must be a minimum 21 years of age with a valid driver's license, undergo a criminal record review and MTO driver record search, and agree to the company's strict Code of Contact.

Once the prerequisites have been met, the trainee must pass a vision test, complete a defensive driving course and successfully pass the MTO written and road tests.

After the candidate has successfully obtained their Class "E" or "B" license, the training does not stop there. In an effort to achieve driver excellence, ML Bradley's qualified trainers are continually developing training programs and seminars for all drivers.

ML Bradley's vehicles are serviced on a regular basis and meet Ministry of Transportation standards. The company's trained service technicians ensure that all the buses are kept clean and in top mechanical working order. Each vehicle is placed in the company's Fleet Management system to make sure all inspections are completed on schedule.

All of M.L. Bradley's buses are equiped with the Child Check Mate System developed by owner Gord Both. The system ensures that sleeping children are not accidentally left on the bus.

M.L. Bradley was also the first bus company in the region to hold a "First Time Rider Day" for young children, doing so in 1991. The program has since been held by other carriers.

As a local familly-operated company, ML Bradley takes pride in giving back to the community. They have been involved in a variety of projects and initiatives including the Orléans Outstanding Youth Awards, the Juno Beach Visitor Centre, Camp Banting, the CICB Run For The Cure, the Joan McCann Leukemia Foundation, and much, much more.
