Empresa de Autobuses ”Antonio Puerto”


This company, founded in 1922 by Antonio Puerto, operated as EMPRESA DE AUTOBUSES before changing in 1925 to AUTOBUSES DE BOYACA and in 1926 finally to COMPAÑIA DE TRANSPORTES TERRESTRES.


In the beginning the company linked DUITAMA with BOGOTA but extended its routes to BUCARAMANGA, CUCUTA and HONDA.


The company ceased operations in 1933. In the few years this company had been in operation, it issued on blue / dark blue stamp, Perf. 11, printed in lithography. Only used for a very short period.

Apparently only two covers franked with these stamps have survived.


Propably the only cover existing from this company..
