  • About Our Small Buses

    Small buses are the perfect alternative to 15 passenger vans. With the price of a new 15 passenger bus being only slightly more than a new 15-passenger van, it makes since to purchase a bus. One key consideration is safety. 15 passenger buses are proven safer vehicles. Another critical factor is comfort. With a center aisle and 80” interior height, folks of all ages can move around with comfort and ease. See more 15 passenger buses for sale.

  • About Our Mid-Size Buses

    When a 15 passenger bus isn’t enough, a 26 passenger bus is worth considering. Our 26 passenger bus is the most popular bus for sale in our inventory. The very small cost difference between a 15 & 26 passenger bus is certainly worth it to your organization. One issue to consider, however, is buses over 15 passengers require a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL.) Confirm this with your local authorities. See more of our mid-size buses for sale.

  • About Our Large Buses

    When you have a large congregation or group to carry, using multiple 15 passenger vehicles may not be the best option for you. With a large 30 passenger bus or something even bigger, you can carry all of your passengers in the same vehicle. There are plenty of reasons this is a good idea but two to consider are: one fuel bill instead of paying for multiple vehicles and having all of the people arrive at your destination at the same time.
