The latest from Myers Equipment and Thomas Built Buses

January 2018



In the interest of continuing to give our customers the best bus in the industry, Thomas Built Buses has added a couple exclusive new options. 

We are excited to announce that LED headlights are now available for the Saf-T-Liner C2.  These LED headlights are rated at over 30,000 hours, which means less downtime for you and greater headlight life.  LED lights means lower power draw than halogen which increases overall performance.  Most importantly, they allow for much greater visibility and safety.  You can now feel secure sending drivers out on dark mornings or night time activity runs with the best headlights in the industry.

In the interest of serviceability, Thomas Built Buses has now extended their offering of the S.T.A.R.S. mounting system to seats over heater locations, as well.  The S.T.A.R.S. mounting system allows customers to avoid the hassle of having to order continuous track on their lift buses.  Instead, the S.T.A.R.S. mounting system uses anchors in the floor along with pockets, Slide ‘N’ Click, or track segments to provide seating that is easy to remove and maintain, while also being cost-effective.  Now, these easy-to-remove seats can be ordered above heaters, so that heater maintenance can be a much quicker and easier process.

Thomas Built Buses is number one in the industry for a reason: our commitment to constant improvement.  These two new features allow for greater safety and serviceability.  Give us a call to discuss if these features are right for your fleet.



In case you have not heard, our Service Trainer, Allan Swift, has retired.  We wish him the best and welcome John Dominic to the Service Trainer role.  John will take over the role of instructing our service classes, and making sure you and your staff are up to speed on the online service capabilities that are provided to you as a TBB customer. John will also continue his role as Service Manager.

We've hired two new Thomas Built Buses salesmen for our Ohio territory. Brenden Wells will be covering Portage, Summit, Stark, Wayne, Ashland, Richland, Crawford, Wyandot, and Marion counties. Jason Lude will be covering Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana, Carroll, Jefferson, Harrison, Tuscarawas, and Coshocton counties. Paul Myers has transitioned into the TBB Sales Coordinator position, so he has remained accessible to help with pricing and option building for your bus orders.

There is quite a bit of talk in the industry these days about alternative fuels.  Unfortunately, with that talk comes misinformation about diesel.  Visit to learn more about the leading fuel for fuel economy, maintenance, operating range, resale value, and total cost of ownership.

Now is the time to start thinking about school bus purchases for next school year.  Please let us know how we can help you order a bus that is right for you and your fleet.
