5. Where can I get my Bus Serviced Once I Purchase it?
A common misconception is that you would have to bring the bus back to Transportation South or Mid-South Bus Center every time it needed a routine maintenance check-up. Although we would be glad to do so, it is NOT required. We sell buses across the entire country, and have developed relationships with local service shops in your area to make it easy to get your bus serviced locally weather it is a warranty, or non-warranty, related issue, either way.
