Someone new was looking for a medium size bus.

2002 Thomas Transit 24-36 passenger with Wheelchair Lift Excellent Running, aprx 150k, just taken out of service.

The links don't seem to work right so just look under "B" for buses.

The 99 looks clean but being from Nebraska I'm sure you will find a few rusty spots. the auction has awhile to go but they may go for a good price. With the miles on these I would deal with some rust...

Did anyone end up with either of these looks like they went at a good price

As rusty as my van from Nebraska is, I'd be real careful buying bus from there.
Its its rusty on the body, everything underneath is likely worse. Check the frame, floors, and all that really thoroughly for rot.

Yeah 98-2003 were supposed to be the best, and that was the last generation of them. I like mine a lot, just wish it had less rust underneath. For what I bought it to do its amazing.
I like mine, but I've gotta put a water pump on it now!

The 99 looked mostly rust free and went for 3,600. The 96 had some cancer issues hard to tell without getting underneath it. My Thomas from Kansas was coated underneath preserving most everything besides the bottom of the radiator and the power steering lines

3600 should get you a RUST FREE bus.
I only bought the rusty van because it was cheap and has super low mileage. 45k on the odometer, with records!
