School Buses

With cooperation from school bus vendors, the CIESC designed a web based bus purchasing program in which all Indiana 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 20 buses. This program will save you time when ordering new buses.
