HIGH POINT, N.C. — Thomas Built Buses announced that Kerlin Bus Sales in Silver Lake, Indiana, and Omaha Truck Center in Nebraska are its latest Platinum Support certified dealers.

Both dealerships underwent rigorous service training to reduce vehicle downtime and lower vehicle life cycle costs for their customers, according to the school bus manufacturer.

Through this program, we ensure that customers across the nation experience best in class service that will save them time and money as they service their fleets.”
