Number of Passengers
Each congregation has different transportation needs. One church may need a 15-passenger bus for recreational trips, and another church may need a larger bus to make trips with a large choir. Whatever your needs there is a church bus for sale near you.
Who Can Drive?
Some buses require a CDL (Commercial Drivers License) if the total number of occupants is over 15. If there are 15 occupants or less (14 passengers + 1 driver), a CDL is to required. Anyone with a valid driver's license can drive the bus giving you church added flexibility. A bus with less than 15 passengers is a great idea for all sizes of churches. Even if your church needs a bus that holds a large number of passengers, adding a smaller bus to your church can be great for trips with a lower number of people. Owning an additional smaller bus can allow for better gas mileage, driver flexibility, and ease of parking. Regardless of your size needs, We have a bus for sale to meet your needs.
New Bus or Used Bus for Sale? - Options for Your Budget
The needs and budget for your church can vary; that is why we have new church buses for sale and used church buses for sale. We can also help you with financing to set up a monthly payment that is right for you.
Buy or Lease?
Leasing can be a great option if you would like to drive a new bus every few years. You also don't have to worry about the future trade-in value of the bus.
Buying a bus is an excellent option if you would like to spend less money over the entire life of the bus. The upfront costs may be a little higher, but you pay less over the life of the bus.
15-Passenger church buses are safer than 15-passenger vans. Buses have additional safety features that bring the overall safety level above a traditional 15-passenger van.
