Taking children to school. Transporting workers to remote sites. Helping visitors explore our surroundings. Buses move people. And when it comes to moving people, safety, comfort and durability matter most. It’s why Thomas Built Buses are the recognized leader in the industry.

Safety and Comfort for Riders and Drivers

Every school bus needs to meet D250 specifications to travel on the road. Thomas Built buses go beyond those requirements to create unparalleled safety and comfort for riders and drivers alike.

Backed by Daimler Trucks North America, Thomas Built leverages global engineering capacity to continuously improve their quality standards. The result is a bus that has left behind the days of thousands of rivets holding the structure together. Instead, high-grade sheet metal and aviation adhesives strengthen the bus cage and serve as the focal point of a safety rating that surpasses all competitors.

Nobody knows buses better than drivers and Thomas Built has been celebrated as the bus that drivers most preferred to use in a third-party survey by an Association in BC. The biggest differences that set the brand apart? The automotive-feeling comfort and ergonomics of the driver’s space as well as the overall visibility inside and outside the bus.

Durability for Owners

Comfort and safety for drivers and passengers is key when assessing new buses, but as an owner, the price needs to be right and durability needs to be high. It ensures your investment is worth it over the long term.

For school boards, daycares, touring organizations and companies with remote operations, the return on a Thomas Built bus is well worth the expense. The strength of construction with the best materials on the market and the variety of additional safety features mean your vehicles will last for years while your most important asset, your passengers, arrive at their destinations safely.
