“With nearly 50 years of experience with the Blue Bird brand, we are confident that we will deliver exceptional support and service to our customers in this great state,” Schmitt said. “Our top priority is that buses are kept running for our customers, and we believe school bus customers in Virginia will take notice of our fast, reliable service and easy parts distribution.”
