Cooperative Bus Purchasing
With cooperation from school bus vendors, Kansas has implemented a web based bus purchasing program in which all Kansas school districts can take advantage of group purchasing, regardless of the size of their order. A district ordering one bus gets the same price as a district ordering multiple buses.  This program will save you time when ordering new buses.

Save money
Ordering in quantity always saves money, even when it comes to buses. When many schools order through one program, vendors can offer better prices.

Simplify ordering
All the information you need – vendors, specifications, bids, and contacts – is available in one convenient package.

Accuracy in ordering
Every order is reviewed to make sure you’re getting what you want at the right price, and your order is discussed with you if there are any questions.

Bus that fits your needs
All school bus manufacturers and bus styles are available.
