Is rust an issue on my bus?
While every bus in Canada has some form of rust, most of our buses have been undercoated from the bus company they were previously owned by year after year.
What motor does your mini buses have?
Well we don’t like fords, we recommend the 6L chevy vortec for inexpensive maintenance and regularly available parts.

Breakdowns on diesel buses compared to gasoline buses are much more expensive. Most bus companies do not use Fords.
