Light-duty and medium-duty bus ‘remans’ now available on the heels of truck and van success

How to save $35-45,000 on a small bus purchase? Remanufacture an existing worn out or broken one. That’s what the East Texas Council of Governments has done. After coordinating with the Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT), the East Texas Council of Governments (ETCOG) awarded a contract to evaluate vehicle remanufacturing to supplement their fleet acquisition and management program. In June 2017, ETCOG awarded Vehicle Reman (@vehiclereman) a contract to remanufacture its paratransit buses. Two of those buses are now running alongside new-purchase buses in the fourteen (14) county area served by ETCOG.
ETCOG’s Transportation Director, Jim Camp, commented on the program, “Thanks to Vehicle Reman, two of our old buses with blown motors now look and drive like new. We saved over 50% and every bus came with a nationwide, powertrain warranty.”
New replacement buses cost $70-90,000. ETCOG has returned two buses to service for less than the price of one replacement bus. The remanufactured buses carry the same 3-year, 100,000-mile warranty TXDOT requires of new buses. The reman process involves a detailed inspection and assessment followed by separating the body and chassis; once separated, the body and chassis are simultaneously processed in a production line environment. After removing old parts and replacing them with new parts, the body and chassis are re-mated. Then, drive cycles and quality checks are completed prior to returning the bus to service.
