GERMANTOWN — Each year GO Riteway Transportation Group recognizes a supplier to the company that goes above and beyond to help the company succeed. GO Riteway enjoys many long-term partnerships with suppliers and it’s important that they meet company standards and function as an integral part of the company, according to a company press release.

This year, during the second annual Night of Honors, co-owner and chairman of GO Riteway, Ron Bast presented Roger Boehlke and Chad Kroening with the 201819 Partner of the Year Award.

The relationship with Cedarburg-based Boehlke Bottled Gas began in 2011, when Riteway acquired GO Airport Connection. This was the time GO Riteway began incorporating propane-powered vehicles into its fleet. Together Riteway and Boehlke learned how to build and operate a 24/7 propane auto-gas station, according to the press release.

“The partnership has developed and strengthened throughout the years,” according to the press release. “Both companies continue to work together to make improvements to the operation of the three propane auto-gas station sites.”

The second annual Night of Honors was held last month in Oak Creek as part of the summer Manager’s Meeting.

GO Riteway Transportation Group was founded more than 60 years ago when the Bast Family founded Riteway Bus Service Inc. Now into the third generation of family leadership, GO Riteway continues to expand and provides transportation for business travelers, tourists, students and local residents. It operates out of 23-plus locations in Wisconsin with a fleet that includes school buses, motor coaches, shuttle coaches, limo coaches, executive sedans and vans.
