Our Story

Our Story

Schooner Bay was founded in 1993. Since then the company has grown in both size and scope. Chris and Renita Merritt purchased Schooner Bay in 2008 along with a partner, since bought out. Starting with four sedans and two minivans providing local taxi service to Rockland Maine the company has expanded to a fleet of eighteen and now offers a variety of transportation services. As the leading transportation company in the Mid-Coast Schooner Bay continues to bring new ideas and options to the area ranging from food delivery through a dedicated website to releasing a customer app available in both Google and Apple versions in the fall of 2017.
