Re: Wanted: Bluebird TC Special Ed Bus

Never mind that one, that's way too much.
Check this out. In Kankakee Illinois, Midwest Transit has a LOT of the shorter buses, and almost all of them are at 2900.

I was just shopping there for our bus.

It's a lot closer to you too.

Re: Wanted: Bluebird TC Special Ed Bus

Oh, and you might want to avoid the Thomas buses they have. I was informed that many of them have "issues". Stuff like busted brake lines, dead batteries, etc. I guess they were parked for a few years, and not maintained. They have a lot of them currently.
So, unfortunately, that may rule out a lot of those you would be interested in. They are super friendly though on the phone, they were willing to tell me straight up what is going on with them. There is probably a few of them that are fine, but they will need going over with a fine tooth comb, because of the time they sat unmaintained.
For someone with some time, and a bit of money, replacing the stuff will be no big deal, but I am too far away to consider those units. Towing from Illinois would be expensive.

Thanks for all of the info, this is great. I am already looking for a second bus for the business, so things are going well.
