During the early 1900's, the bus industry was in its pioneer days. Travel was quite an adventure considering the road conditions and the vehicles of the day. One of the early transportation pioneers in the West, specifically the San Joaquin Valley in Central California, was Cyril C. Haworth.One of the most outstanding differences about Cyril Haworth's operation is that it still exists today as one of the most respected and successful independent bus carriers in the West.
