The Wynne family started one of the largest independent/international Oil and Gas exploration firms in the US and one of the ten (10) largest Law firms in the state of Texas.

For over seventy-five years, the Wynne family has extended their name, entrepreneurial spirit and keen business acumen into the entertainment and personal hospitality industries where it has become synonymous with quality and excellence. They built the ‘Texas Pavilion’ at the New York World’s Fair, the Le Meridian Hotel in Dallas as well as the Bangkok and Malta Hilton Hotels. They also designed what is now the Dallas Hilton Anatole Hotel, started the ‘Six Flags Over Texas’ theme parks and were original founders and partners with Clint Murchison in the NFL Dallas Cowboys football franchise.

It is from these roots that Wynne was born in the winter of 1986 as a specialty vehicle lease management company serving the ground transportation industry. During this part of Wynne’s history it derived the majority of its revenues from limousine leasing contracts with locally DFW based airport sedan and limousine companies. In 1995, Wynne started its own Airport Sedan and Limousine Ground Transportation service company (Wynne Sedan Group). In march 2008 Wynne acquired Priority One Motor Coaches and it fleet of late model Van Hool motor coaches.

Priority One Motor Coaches had been in the chartered coach industry since 1995 concentrating on the high school and collegiate, special corporate events, and sports events industries.

During Wynne’s decades of operation, it has enjoyed annually increasing revenues and growth.

“Then and Now in Sixty Seconds” as told by Bedford Wynne, President of Wynne

Wynne Transportation was started by my mother, Joan Wynne, in December of 1985. She is a real estate broker and at the time was using limousines to show clients land deals and celebrate closings. (Think 1980’s Texas – big hair, big cars.) I was in middle school and using limos for dances and was the coolest guy at the party.

The operator the business was using wanted to expand his operation and couldn’t qualify for another loan on a limo, so he approached Joan and she bought her first limo. After five years, she had limos in Dallas, Austin, and Houston and was acting as the bank. We had limos at our disposal and it was a blast!

In the early 1990’s the real estate market crashed and so did the luxury limousine market. She revamped the business and started Wynne Transportation.

How did this impact me? I graduated college in 2001 and the found the job market was not exactly thriving, so I went to work in the family business, thinking it would be until I found something better.

That was 15 years ago and we are still going strong.

In those 15 years, I had a vision and built our meeting and event business with the purchase of multiple SUV’s, vans, Sprinters, VanTerras and mini-buses. In 2008, we purchased a small motor coach firm with 6 buses.

We just took possession of our 30th motorcoach and named 2016 Motorcoach Operator of the Year by LCT Magazine! So, I never needed to find something better. It was in my backyard the whole time.

I assume it is just like any other job – some days you love it and other days you want to throw your desk out the window. I have always been a boy at heart and I think that is why the larger equipment has always been interesting to me. I love watching those big buses roll in and out of the yard and always will.
