About Cook-Illinois Corporation CIfFeeE!!87
We put safety and dependability in the driver’s seat.
For more than 50 years, schools and parents have trusted Cook-Illinois Corporation with the most precious cargo. Nothing is more important to us then getting students to school safely and on time. In 1958, when we were just a small company with a handful of buses, we made the commitment to put safety and dependability in the driver’s seat, every day and on every route.
Today, our fleet has grown and we are now the largest family owned and operated school bus contractor in the United States – and the sixth largest among all school bus companies nationwide. While we have expanded our service over the years, we have not forgotten what a privilege and great responsibility it is to transport children.
We provide service for customers in the Chicago area with 18 school bus subsidiaries, including:
Alpha School Bus Company (exclusively special needs transportation)
American School Bus Company-Frankfort
American School Bus Company-Orland Park
