Doherty's Garage, Lincoln's oldest business, was founded in 1905 by Matthew Doherty as a horse and buggy taxi
service. Today the business provides daily transportation for the Lincoln Public Schools, Hanscom Air Force Base, and Gann Academy in Waltham, as well as doing charter trips for numerous schools and organizations throughout New England. While our
fleet no longer features horse-drawn carriages, it does include fifteen school buses, two rubbish packers, a recycle truck, and various other small vehicles. During the summer Doherty's buses transport over one thousand kids to Camp Sewataro in
Sudbury and to Camp Thoreau in Concord. Doherty's is the largest rubbish and recycling removal company in Lincoln. The Garage is also a full-service Mobil station with three automotive repair bays, as well as a Massachusetts State Inspection bay.
Doherty's Garage incorporated in 1958 and moved from its original location at 10 Lewis Street to its current location at 161 Lincoln Rd. in 1967. The original building has had several facelifts over the years. In 1978 an
upstairs office was added to make room for a small restaurant downstairs. An additional bay was added for bus maintenance in 1981. The office was expanded in 1987 and again in 2001. The latest construction occurred in September 2002 with the
enclosing of the back stairway.
October 1978 saw the opening of the Country Squire, which was operated by the Pappas family until 1991. The restaurant changed hands two other times between 1992 and 1996, when Harry
Kyros moved in and changed the Country Squire to Country Pizza. Country Pizza opened to rave reviews in April 1997 and has been Lincoln's favorite sub and pizza shop for almost a decade.
Throughout the 105-year
history of Doherty's Garage, the Doherty family has run the company. You can still see Matthew's son, Bill, driving and maintaining the buses. Matthew's granddaughter, Cindy runs the bus and rubbish services, while her husband, Dennis, runs the gas
pumps and repair bays.
The gas pumps are open from 6 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The repair bays are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
