History

“Ever since I got my license, I've liked giving my friends rides. I started driving tour buses while in college to make some extra money for school. It started out as my part time job and it became my career. I liked it so much I started my own company.”

- Scott A. Riccio, President, Owner and Founder

Since 1999, when our original bus shuttled skiers from the Portland Jetport to Sunday River, we have grown our fleet to 13 charter buses, three mini-buses, passenger van and SUV. We now have a second location in Lincolnville, Maine in order to serve all of Maine and provide charter transportation services throughout the United States and Canada.

We’re also big sports fans! We are proud to be the official transportation and carrier for the Portland Sea Dogs (affiliate of the Boston Red Sox) for the past 9 years. We’ve also been behind the wheel for 6 years as the travel provider for the Lewiston Maineiacs hockey team of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Northeast Charter & Tour is proud to be the official carrier and transporters
of the Portland Sea Dogs, Portland Pirates and the Lewiston Maineiacs.

While we continue to grow we place the utmost importance on high quality service and our relationships with all our customers.

We also value the hard work and dedication of our employees…

Each summer, the hard-working staff at the Northeast Charter & Tour comes together for a traditional Maine barbeque and picnic.

This past year was the fourth year of the barbeque party for staff to come together and share time away from the office and garage. Food included steaks, ribs and smoked salmon. As a special gift, employees also received re-usable grocery bags with the Northeast Charter & Tour logo.


Northeast Charter & Tour celebrated 10 years of success
in Maine with a golf tournament in 2010.

As part of the company's 10th anniversary, TD Bank and Firestone also sponsored a golf outing for employees after the barbeque.
