Bus Rentals – TN

Rentals Made Easy

Carpenter Bus Sales has two Regional Rental Offices:  Franklin, TN (615-376-2287 x213) and Waco, TX (254-799-3000 x226).

(Since the rental customer is responsible for the cost of delivery from our rental offices and back, it is generally cost-prohibitive for short-term rentals for customers beyond 150 miles from our rental offices.)

Typical rental customers include churches, senior care communities, private schools, and charter companies. (We do not provide drivers; we are not a bus charter company.)


  1. We cannot rent to individuals.
  2. Rental Customers are responsible for their own qualified drivers and insurance.

We have 3 basic bus sizes available for rental:

Small bus – 15 passenger (including driver)

  • Only requires a normal driver’s license. (Does not require a “CDL.”)
  • Available with or without a Rear Storage (RS) Area
