The Safety of Thomas Built Buses for Your Child Care Transportation

Transporting little passengers is a big job. That’s why Thomas child care buses are built to the same legendary standards as their school buses. They meet all of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and are designed to help you maneuver through whatever conditions come your way. The difference? No yellow paint, stop lights, or stop arms. Whether you’re transporting 14 or 81 children, a durable, dependable, comfortable Thomas bus makes your big job a whole lot easier—and safer.

Built to Fit Your Needs

Child care can provide a wide range of services, from early education to after-school activities. With so many functions, every child care facility has a unique set of transportation needs. We offer several Thomas Built models with options to fit every need. From the 14-passenger MyBus DRW to the 81-passenger Saf-T-Liner C2, we can help you reach your destinations safely and comfortably. Available options include rear-view backup camera, bookracks, and even a wheelchair lift. At Carolina Thomas, we can partner with you to find the perfect bus to fit your budget and keep you on the road for years to come.
