The company was formed in 1896 to take over the assets of earlier companies which had gone bankrupt. In its final form it ran from St Helier to St Aubin and La Corbière. An intensive service was operated, especially along the seafront line between St Helier and St Aubin with fewer services continuing to La Corbière. In 1925 over one million passengers were carried but, following declining traffic and a disastrous fire in which 16 carriages were destroyed, the line did not reopen for the 1937 summer season.
