Purchasing a Bus For Your Senior Living Community

Is your senior living community thinking about purchasing a bus? We believe it’s one of the best things you can do for your community and your residents. Here are a few reasons why;

1.Handicap Accessible:

It is important that your bus is able to accommodate everyone, that being said a wheelchair accessible bus is a good idea for a senior living community.  At The Bus Center we offer both Braun and Ricon wheelchair lifts and Sure-Lok and Q’Straint tie-down kits.  It is important to purchase your bus with these features, because they are extremely difficult and expensive to add after the bus has been built.

It would have been unheard of to call diesel a clean fuel 10, 15, even 20 years ago.  But, thanks to today’s ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) and new advances in engine technology diesel is the cleanest option to any alternative fuel.  “We are hearing a lot about alternative fuel in the industry right now,” said Caley Edgerly, president and CEO of Thomas Built Buses.  “However, instead of focusing on the alternative fuel trends, school districts should be talking about which school bus operates efficiently, is better for the environment and saves money on fuel costs. It’s always great to have options, but when it comes to fuel choice, diesel remains the best fuel option for fleets today.”
