Mr Levi Wright, Sr.

Wright’s Charters, Inc., the first minority owned bus and tour service in Mobile, began its operation as a sole proprietorship, Wright's Tours & Charter Service, Inc., on March 18, 1987 by Mr. Levi Wright Sr.

Receiving a vision, Mr. Wright purchased his first bus and developed the concept of providing quality transportation to Mobile and surrounding cities. Mr. Henry McIntosh, owner and operator of McIntosh Charters and Tours assisted Mr. Wright in requesting and completing the required forms and authority to travel state highways, as well as interstates. With the approval of the State and Interstate Commerce Commission, Wright’s Tours & Charter Service, Inc. made its first trip to Macon, Georgia, with the Greater Mt. Olive Baptist Church No.2., on April 11, 1987.

Due to the increase in business and the need for more space, the property and building of Wright’s Tours & Charter Service, Inc.’s present location, 2328 St. Stephens Road, was purchased August 28, 1992. The expansion created the need for an additional bus which was added January 17, 1994.

Now traveling throughout the United States and Canada, Wright’s Tours and Charter Service, Inc. has made its mark. Wright’s Charters, Inc. now owns four buses and a van, which is utilized primarily for smaller groups and airport and hotel shuttle services.

Wright’s staff consists of six certified bus drivers, two certified van drivers, three sales representatives, two trip coordinators, one tour guide and a secretary.

On January 1, 1996, Wright’s Tours & Charter Service was incorporated, and celebrated its 25th anniversary March 2012. We have formally changed the name to Wright’s Charters, Inc.

Since the death of Levi Wright Sr., the company has been run under the leadership of his wife, Elizabeth L. Wright. She has been named as the president of Wright’s Charters, Inc. She also holds a seat on the Board of Directors for the Alabama Motorcoach Association. Under her leadership, our goal has not changed. We aim to please and serve our customers with safe, reliable, and quality motorcoach service. Efficient and dependable service will always be present at Wright’s Charters, Inc.
