The Public Service Interstate Transportation Co. was one of main customers of the Ford Transit buses. The figures are very impressive: 240 coaches were delivered in 1944 (Model 49-B; 3400-3499 and 4300-4439 series); 40 in 1946 (Model 69-B; 4400-4479 series) and year 1947 saw the final non-GM bus purchases from the giant company, when a group of Ford 79-B's and Brill C-44 suburban buses were delivered. The order for 246 Transits of 79-B model was the last and one of the biggest in the Ford Transit bus story. These coaches were numbered A600-A845 in the Public Service roster. In 1950 the company bought seven additional second-hand Transits from Ironbound Transportation Co.
