Here  we cover  two of the three  sister companies making up  the Adirondack/Pine Hill/New York Trailways system, the  first one founded by  John Van  Gonsic back in 1936, and the  other   acquired in 1964 and later integrated into the Adirondack Trailways system.

One of the earliest members of the Trailways National Bus System, Adirondack Trailways grew from its initial New York to Kingston route to a route network  that now covers much of the Adirondack/St.Lawrence region of New York State.. The company is still  owned by the same Van Gonsic/Berardi family that founded it  in 1936. Its route  structure now reaches from New York City through Albany to Montreal, Quebec  as well as Albany to  Syracuse,Kingston to  Oneonta, Kingston to Utica  via Oneonta. In addition, sister Company, Pine Hill Trailways, which was acquired by Adirondack in 1964, operates a route  from Kingston to  Oneonta   and on    to Utica   via Cooperstown. Even   though  several buses are  lettered for Pine Hill Trailways,  this company operates essentially  as part of the larger Adirondack network. Fleet  roster  for  all three companies can be  found under the New York Trailways listing.  Like Adirondack Trailways, Pine Hill   has made the transition from GMC coaches to MCI equipment   as, by 1983  General  Motors got out of the  transit bus  business, having gotten out  of intercity buses      about 3  years  earlier..Reason being said to have been   attributed to the declining quality of GMC buses of intercity and  transit  designs..
