School Bus Leasing
Municipal lease-to-own financing for public and charter schools. Whether you’re outfitting/upgrading a fleet of 2 or 200, school bus lease-to-own financing makes sense. Gas, Diesel, or Electric (EV) buses, no problem.
ALL vehicles are lease-to-own, they are registered by and titled in the school’s name and remain in the school’s name and possession during and after the lease; no vehicle is returned (these are not rentals–your government own them, there are no buyouts, mileage, condition surcharges or other fees).
We are seeing more and more school districts and charter schools who experimented with outsourcing their student transportation begin to take a hard look at the numbers and pull that traditional function back in-house.
Our programs are a very smart source of very low-interest municipal government, lease-to-own financing. We are not a contractor or a third-party operator.
Electric School Buses – Are You Ready?
The environment is ready for electric & hybrid vehicles. Technology is moving forward and getting better all the time. Communities, families & districts are on board. Most know the benefits, but many don’t see the upfront entry costs, We can show you what fleet electrification from vehicles to charging stations will cost.
How Old is Your School Bus Fleet?
“We had a rock-solid bus and van rotation plan…and then it slipped away on us with a greater number of older vehicles on the road or in the shop than we ever intended.” (We hear this a lot more than you might think)
Fleets that are pushing the age/miles envelope are also costing you in maintenance, downtime, insurance, scheduling issues, and perhaps most importantly, are creating student safety concerns. Rentals or third-party operators may not be your best option, either.
The fastest and least expensive way to “catch up” is by retiring your oldest vehicles and use our school bus leasing program to spread the high capital cost of new vehicles over multiple budget periods–rather than draining next year’s budget and replacing a fraction of what you actually need to get your budget and your equipment needs back “in sync.” School bus leasing is by far the fastest and least expensive way to retire more of your oldest vehicles now.
The miles keep adding up; this is one issue that’s not going away by itself.
Do More, With Less
Bet you’ve heard that a few too many times from the Mayor, the City Manager, or the Board of Education. We will show you how to wring more school buses and equipment out of this year’s funds. We’ve saved the big surprise for last. We will do it for less than you’re spending now by allowing your district to S-P-R-E-A-D those costs over 3-7 (or more) budget years.
100% Turnkey Solutions
Include any equipment your school district needs to make very bus “street ready” for your transportation department. From mobile radios & security, GPS, school bus routing software, student-restraint upgrades, and ADA equipment to window tinting, vehicle graphic…and everything in between. With tax-exempt municipal school bus leasing, if it’s essential to your school’s transportation program, it’s in!
Your Lowest Cost Financing
Its a fact: School bus leasing is your school’s lowest-cost source of non-debt financing. Every program is designed specifically for municipal entities and their school bus fleet leasing needs.
Skip the pay-for-it-all-in-advance budget trap this year. It’s a tough fiscal model to get tangled up in. Our programs are “Pay as You Go,” and departments tell us that it just makes sense with today’s ever-tightening budgets.
