Burlington Trailways is an inter-city bus company based in West Burlington, Iowa.

Burlington Trailways was founded in 1929 as the Burlington Transportation Company, a subsidiary of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. In 1936 it was a charter member of the Trailways Transportation System, an association of independent intercity bus operators created to offset the growing strength of Greyhound Lines.[2][3]
