Choose from quality options for the solution that fits your needs
In all of passenger transportation, school bus transportation leaves the least room for error. There are children that need to get to school, and parents that need to get to work. Vehicle uptime is critical, and leaving kids behind is not an option. Your fleet needs quality vehicles and a service team dedicated to keeping those vehicles on the road. That’s why we partner with the best bus body manufacturers in the industry: IC Bus (Type C & D), and Collins (Type A).
Ed DeVivo purchased a school bus in 1949 at the age of 18.” He ran a school bus route for the town of Berlin and was soon joined by his brother, Lou. In 1991, the DeVivo family found that the level of service offered by school bus dealers didn’t meet their expectations, so they started their own. At DeVivo Bus Sales, we know how to serve our school bus customers, because we’ve been a customer.
A school bus is the right choice for anyone providing home-to-school transportation to school-aged children. If you’re a school district, a school bus contractor, or a school that provides your own home-to-school transportation, then this is the right option for you.
