Leonard Bus Sales Delivers Its First Commercial Buses Off of the New York State OGS Adult Contract: Eighteen Buses Delivered to ARC Chapters Across the Empire State

February 26, 2013, Saratoga Springs – Leonard Bus Sales recently delivered three new Type 4 IC Brand HC Commercial buses to Saratoga Bridges, the Saratoga County Chapter of NYSARC (photo attached).  The vehicles were the first of 18 new buses being delivered to 10 different ARCs in New York State, which are the first commercial buses ordered and delivered via Leonard’s inclusion on the New York State Office of General Service Adult Contract – a list of state-approved vendors and products for certain non-profits and state entities.

“We are honored to be on state contract, and delighted to deliver these new IC Bus brand commercial buses,” said Mike Leonard. “We are proud to supply reliable, affordable and environmentally-sound vehicles.  And it’s also rewarding to see our buses going to help such a great cause.”

Saratoga Bridges purchased its new buses off of the state contract with the help of the Federal Transportation Administration’s 5310 grant program for adult transportation non-profits.   The program has made it possible for many ARC organizations in New York to invest in their transportation needs.

Saratoga Bridges Transportation Director Jon Ladd said, “These buses will help Saratoga Bridges fulfill our mission to provide resources that enrich lives within the community.”

The IC Bus HC Series Buses come in many different floor plan options, and can be purchased with wheelchair capability and without, depending on an organizations need.  The knowledgeable sales staff at Leonard Bus Sales can work with organizations to help them identify the right design, and answer question about the state contract and any federal grants that may be available.
