Thomas Built announces activity bus rental program

Posted on July 6, 2011

HIGH POINT, N.C. — Dealers of Thomas Built Buses’ MyBus unit are offering a program in which MyBus vehicles with a 14-passenger configuration are available for short- and long-term rental.

The program, created by Thomas Built Buses and Daimler Truck Financial, includes complete physical damage and liability insurance.

“Reliable, everyday transportation is essential to businesses such as child care centers, church groups and service organizations, and that need doesn’t stop while buses are being serviced,” said Ken Hedgecock, vice president of sales, marketing and service for Thomas Built Buses. “Backed by exceptional customer service, the MyBus rental program allows our dealers to assist the industry with safe, simple and reliable transportation as customer needs evolve. For example, the MyBus rental program is great for organizations with sudden increases in ridership, such as the addition of summer camp programs.”

The MyBus by Thomas Built Buses is a multi-function school activity bus that was introduced in 2009. Company officials said it was designed to be safe, easy to maintain and durable enough to withstand the daily rigors of transporting children and adults. Its full-height (73 inches of interior headroom), outward-opening entrance door and wide aisle allow easy access. The all-steel safety cage body construction and two roof crash rails offer added passenger and rollover protection, and the interior features automotive-style gauges and driver controls.

Thomas Built Buses manufactures three MyBus models: the up to 14-passenger SRW, the up to 20-passenger DRW 041 and the up to 30-passenger DRW 051. The SRW, which features a 4.8L V8 gas engine, and the DRW with a 14-passenger configuration do not require a commercial driver’s license in many states and are the only models available through the rental program.

MyBus daily, weekly and monthly rental rates and mileage allowances vary by dealer. Call (888) 635-8526 or click here to locate your nearest dealer.
