Transit-Liner® C2.
Built to your custom specifications. And our high standards.

Our Transit-Liner® C2 commercial bus is incredibly versatile. Thomas Built can customize it to meet your specific needs, including features like coach-style seating, overhead roof racks, video systems and tinted windows. Years ago the C2 set the industry standard, with outstanding maneuverability, state-of-the-art driver ergonomics and the most visibility among all Type C buses. It’s built to the same standards as a school bus, providing long-term durability with all-steel construction. Other commercial buses simply don’t meet those levels of quality.
