If you often rent large group transportation vehicles for your school, church, or community, it might be time to consider the purchase of a new or used coach, mini bus, or full-sized bus. A bus can be used as is, or customized to accommodate special needs and purposes. Here are some of the ways that a bus purchase can benefit your group:
School Bus - A large bus can be purchased to transport school students to sporting events, scholastic competitions, band and choral presentations, drill team tournaments, and class outings. Custom magnetic signs can be made and placed on both sides of the bus to identify each school group when they use the bus.
Church Bus - Church members can benefit from using their own large bus on social occasions, but they can also make use of them for charity activities. A customized bus can be used to take church members on trips to other locations and even other countries to deliver aid to the poverty-stricken and homeless. Food, clothing and other donations can travel with the church members on the bus. Church members can recline in their bus seats to allow them to sleep on the bus while traveling to and from their destination.
Assisted Living Bus - Elderly residents in assisted living communities can benefit from having their own bus to take them to entertainment venues, sports competitions, and other events. It can also be used to transport them to group medical appointments for screenings, medications, and treatments. A bus for the elderly can be customized for wheelchair-bound passengers to get them easily on and off the bus and secure them safely in place while in transit.
Special Bus Conversions - When you purchase a bus, you can customize it by removing the seats and installing equipment and other items as needed. Here are some ways to convert a bus for special purposes:
- Mobile Medical and Dental Clinic - A bus can be converted into a mobile medical and dental clinic to treat patients who cannot travel to treatment offices. This bus can provide medical maintenance services for chronically ill patients or treat those without health care insurance. It can also be used to inoculate and vaccinate people during an epidemic outbreak.
- Mobile Personal Care Services for the Homeless - A bus specifically designed to aid the homeless can help them to be clean and remain healthy. It can be customized with showers for bathing and grooming chairs where the homeless can have their hair cut and beards shaved. Other personal care services for the poor and homeless can include fingernail and toenail trimming, and first aid treatments. This bus can also carry clothing and bedding donations for those in need.
- Mobile Pet Grooming - A bus can be purchased and converted to care for pets and animals in need. Volunteer veterinarians and groomers can diagnose and care for animals that have no other way of being treated.
A private or community bus purchase can serve many purposes and aid many people. If reliable group transportation and services could benefit your group, look into available funding and charitable donations to purchase and convert a new or used bus for your group.
