The Olander Coach Story

Just like a great team of horses, it takes a great team of people all “pulling into the harness” to deliver great experiences.

Olander Bus Service Inc. was founded in 1961 by Lindy Olander and Lowell Arndt as a partnership. Shortly thereafter, Lindy Olander assumed full interest in the company and continued to provide charter service and operate school busses for Detroit Lakes Schools for 34 years along-side his children until his passing in 1995. Carol Olander managed the company upon Lindy’s passing and with the help of Lindy’s children and grandchildren continued his legacy of safely transporting Detroit Lake’s most treasured assets until retiring from the company in 2016.

Leadership of Olander Bus Service Inc. has now been passed to the third generation with Nathan Olander and family taking the reins in 2016. Motorcoach Services were introduced in 2017 with the addition of Olander Coach. The call letters of the first motorcoaches pay homage to the late Lindy Olander, and his son and Nathan’s father, Steve Olander. Look just above the door and driver window to spot them!
