Carpenter Bus Sales is the largest supplier of small shuttle buses. We have more small buses for sale than any other dealer in the United States or Canada. Our small buses are classified as any bus that is under 15 passengers including the driver. Our small buses can have fewer than 15 passengers but can not exceed that number and still be considered a small bus.
Each state has its own requirements that might override this, but Federal law says that any bus carrying 15 passengers or less (including the driver) does not require a Commercial Drivers License (CDL.) Again, check with your state DMV to determine your requirements. The most popular small buses for sale in our inventory tend to be the 15 passenger Starcraft Allstar with rear storage, the Starcraft Starquest 15 passenger and the Starcraft Allstar that carries 13 passengers plus 2 wheel chair stations.
Of all of the small buses in our inventory, the 15 passenger bus with rear storage is the best selling bus over the last three years. Our customers have determined that it is better to have the storage area to be able to use it on longer trips that require luggage for overnight stays. If you are in the market for a new small bus or a used small bus, please give us a call at (800) 370-6180 and we will be glad to assist you.
