GO Riteway’s origin as a premier ground transportation company began three generations ago with Riteway Bus Service, Inc. in 1957.

Be More Than A Ride, Be A Solution
We never compromise safety. We lead the industry in best practices. We make every decision with safety in mind.
We keep our promises. We do the right thing when no one is looking. We take accountability for our actions, service and work.
Everyone does their part. We work together to develop solutions. We support relationships through effective communication.
GO Riteway is a member in good standing with many organizations that enable us to stay on top of industry trends, operate a green fleet, remain compliant with current safety regulations, and look ahead with tomorrow’s technology.
As the ‘local school bus company’, GO Riteway is an integral part of the communities we serve. We are closely associated with the school districts for which we provide transportation, so our contributions to neighborhoods and families put us in the spotlight of community service.
Given that we transport thousands of students every day, we believe in supporting the community. Our school bus division is visible at many events providing transportation for participants in Briggs & Al’s Run for Children’s Hospital, the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, the USS Milwaukee Commissioning and more. If your organization has a fundraising/donation request, please fill out the form and we will be in contact with you.
Due to the large volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that all requests be submitted at least three months prior to any action needed by GO Riteway.
GO Riteway cares about the environment and we are doing our part to make the world more sustainable for future generations. We have established an Environmental Sustainability Program designed to harmonize our company with the environment. We realize the process of becoming more “Green” is one that continuously evolves. Through these initiatives we are committed to making a positive difference to the environment and driving sustainable transportation into the future.
The very nature of our service is already helping the environment. Motorcoaches are the most fuel-efficient transportation mode in North America when measured in terms of passenger miles per gallon of fuel. Buses also fight congestion as each motorcoach has the capacity to take up to 55 cars off the road at one time and in turn save fuel and slash emissions
Each one of our terminal managers are responsible to report by month the mpg of each of its vehicles to our Safety Director. The managers are responsible to reduce fuel consumption, decrease wasted expenditures in fuel and maintenance and improve efficiency. Our drivers are monitored using electronic on board recorders and through the use of road observations.
All GO Riteway vehicles will not idle for any period of time unless for a specific exception. GO Riteway has procedures in place to reinforce with our drivers the importance of adhering to our anti-idling policy.
