    Kudos to Leonard Bus Sales. These guys are a pleasure to work with in all departments. Everyone is cordial and willing to help find a solution to whatever problem/question you could have. Being fairly new to working with solely buses, Leonard has always been helpful in getting me the parts or tech support I need to be succesful in transportation. Thanks!
