      Amsterdam bus lines competed

      Businessman Charles H. Vollmer organized an Amsterdam bus line in 1927 that
      continued under local control until 1956.

      The city granted a franchise to Vollmer in 1927 for bus service for the Park
      Hill section that had not been included in electric trolley routes operated
      by the Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville Railroad (F.J. &G.). Vollmer lived at
      4 Van Dyke Ave. and also operated a trucking company and a garage on
      McFarlan Lane.
