Did you know a Thomas Built bus can be spec’d thousands of different ways? That means that if several thousand buses rolled off of the line, no two would be alike. From type of fuel to electronics, wiring, components and more, any of our buses can be customized to meet your needs.
All of our buses can be equipped with the latest factory-installed features, technologies and state-of-the-art innovations. And that’s not limited to aftermarket features.
Thomas Built Buses and our parent company, Daimler Trucks North America, are committed to building “greener buses” that reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions while maintaining efficiency, engine performance and safety. Over the years, we’ve gained a unique edge in leading green technology in the school bus industry and the ability to offer industry-leading alternative fuel options such as clean–diesel, compressed natural gas (CNG), propane buses and soon an electric option.
Choosing a new fuel type or even spec’ing features and components isn’t something that you should navigate alone. Spec’ing is a strategic endeavor, one that is personal and unique to each district. And even the most innocuous of specs can have major impacts in your fleet. For example, if you live in a colder climate, spec’ing a heated driver seat will decrease your idle time during bus warm up, which will improve your overall fuel economy.
That’s why the dealers in our robust dealer network place a high priority on working one-on-one with you to spec your buses so that they perfectly fit your needs.
When you’re ready, give your local dealer a call and start the spec’ing process together.
