We look forward to ushering Aries into the next generation of the transportation industry – bringing the same quality of service into the tour business, as we have for the past 27 years in our charter transportation.

Aries Charter Transportation, Inc. (Aries), a full service ground transportation provider, announces the acquisition of American Sightseeing and O’Hare Wisconsin Limousine Service.

After over a century in business, American Sightseeing, under the direction of the Ferrone family, made the decision to entrust Aries - another family owned and operated business - to extend their legacy within Chicago’s tourism market.

“We are very happy to announce this news to the industry,” says Chris Ferrone. “We wish Aries Charter Transportation good luck and success with the newly acquired business.”

In addition to providing charter transportation, private car services, and line-run/commuter shuttles, Aries is now offering four daily tours throughout the city with an eye on expansion. The acquisition of American Sightseeing, which includes the Gray Line and Trailways franchises, presents a new chapter for Aries and will help us as we emerge into the tourism market.

Ralph Trevino, President and CEO, said “We look forward to ushering Aries into the next generation of the transportation industry – bringing the same quality of service into the tour business, as we have for the past 27 years in our charter transportation. This investment is in an essential evolution of our company and unlocks an incredible opportunity to leverage our brand recognition, resources, and capabilities ensuring Aries remains at the forefront of the transportation industry.”

Expansion into these new areas, however, would not be possible without our exceptionally talented and dedicated team. As a family owned and operated business, people remain the heart and soul of our operation.

“We are thrilled to welcome the Gray Line and Trailways employees to the Aries family”, says Nick Trevino, Assistant Finance Manager. “As the second generation within this business, I’ve learned firsthand the importance and value of the people who have helped build and shape this company. My father, like the Ferrones, has created an organization that brings out the excellence in everyone, which is one of the many reasons why customers continue to use Aries for their transportation needs.”

Aries looks forward to continuing the legacy of being one of Chicago’s leading transportation and tourism companies for generations to come.
