The year was 1956 and schoolchildren living on the islands of the Ryfylke district were brought to school in private boats. When Ludvik Rødne established a regular school transport system for seven of the Sjernarøy islands, he solved a major logistics problem for locals. Since then, L. Rødne & Sønner AS has grown into a company that is now responsible for a variety of routes in Rogaland and Vestland counties.
