Republic Bus Will Compete With Many Jitneys At Deming

Filed under: Camp Cody Deming — Michael Kromeke @ 3:22 am

The Southern Motor company this week booked an order for a 12 passenger Republic jitney bus, a special body on a standard Republic chassis from a Deming man who will experiment with the bus on the run between the business section of Deming and Camp Cody.

There are now over 170 service cars licensed in Deming and a report in the New Mexico city has it that the camp officers are none too well pleased with the manner in which some of these cars are operating and it is known that a ten cent fare with an established bus line, properly bonded, is favored above the present 25 cent fare and independent drivers.

L. M. Cregor, sales manager of the Southern Motor company, went to Deming on Thursday and from there will go over the New Mexico and Arizona territory of his company in the interest of the Republic line. – El Paso Herald Newspaper – October 13-14, 1917
