Luke Busskohl, 4th generation family member and the son of Steve Busskohl joined the business after working as a motorcoach operator for years prior. After Luke’s arrival in the business, the company continued expanding, but started moving in the direction of new business ventures as well.
The company focused back toward the west, and began providing service in Las Vegas, NV. This new location provided a central point between the company’s Phoenix, AZ and Denver, Co locations, added in the previous years.
The company moved in an opposite direction from previous additions, and went east to open a new location in Des Moines, IA. The new location provided Arrow Stage Lines with opportunities across the entire stretch of I80.
Six years after adding its ninth location, Arrow Stage Lines made a jump into the Colorado market and founded a facility in Denver, CO. The new location was directly in line with the company’s hopes to continue expanding into new cities.
Near the end of the 80’s Arrow Stage Lines added a sixth location in Kansas City, MO. The newly added location put Arrow Stage Lines in a position to start serving both Kansas and Missouri customers. Later the company expanded even further into the state of Kansas, adding locations in Topeka and Manhattan.

In the 80’s Arrow Stage Lines added three new locations, and expanded services into two new states. The first addition came in 1983, and became the company’s fourth location overall. The company opened a facility in Lincoln, NE and now had opportunities to serve the entire eastern state of Nebraska.
The family tradition continued when the 3rd generation, Steve Busskohl, Doyle Busskohl’s son, joined the business in 1980. After Steve’s arrival in the business Arrow Stage Lines began expanding to all areas of the nation.
Quickly after Arrow Stage Lines developed a presence in Omaha, NE, the company expanded west and began offering services in the Grand Island area.
Arrow Stage Lines began to grow and open a second facility in Omaha, NE. This new location provided the company with more opportunities, additional routes and the ability to serve even more customers.
After Doyle joined the business in 1950, a new business venture quickly followed. Allied Tour and Travel started providing customers with tour opportunities. Allied planned all the routes, scheduled all the visits and provided award winning travel opportunities to customers. Allied used Arrow Stage Lines as the source of transportation. Along with the newly founded Allied Tour and Travel, Arrow Stage Lines began supplying ticket bus service with a new venture, Black Hills Stage Lines. Black Hills Stage Lines single ticketed passengers with access to destinations all across the Midwest using Arrow Stage Lines equipment. The partnerships between both new business ventures and Arrow Stage Lines only helped grow each business.
After realizing his newfound business venture provided people with a much-desired service, Carl started expanding with a larger vehicle and later began adding equipment and drivers. In 1950, after experiencing growth, the second generation, Doyle Busskohl, Carl’s son, joined the business. Eager to learn and expand on his father success, Doyle was the beginning of a truly family owned transportation company. Doyle’s key to growing the business was rooted in one main idea, a passion for customer service.
Carl Busskohl founded Arrow Stage Lines in 1928, after he began providing a friendly service to people in the Norfolk, NE community. Carl began transporting mail and bread from Norfolk, NE to Sioux City, IA. Shortly after starting the new route, people began asking for rides. Carl began filling the empty seats with passengers who were eager to travel. After realizing the popularity of providing transportation service, Carl started requesting a small fee in exchange for transportation.
