Cost-Saving Fleet Management and Planning Discussed at School Boards Association’s 96th Annual Convention in New York City

November 4, 2015, Deposit, N.Y. – The Leonard Bus Sales team was on-hand at the New York State School Boards Association’s 96th Annual Convention and Education Expo in October to discuss the importance of cost-saving fleet management strategies, as well as to thank school board members for their continued trust and partnership.

Held at the Sheraton New York Times Square Hotel October 18 – 20, the 96th annual convention brought together hundreds of school board members, school administrators and educators from all over the state for an educational and networking expo. As we have done for the more than thirty-five years, Leonard Bus Sales supported the event and had a number of team members available to discuss fleet rotation and the safety, environmental, and cost benefits of operating newer clean-diesel school buses.

Leonard Bus Sales was also inducted into the New York State School Boards Association’s Blue and Gold Club for supporting the association and its members for more than 35 years.

“It’s a fantastic event and great opportunity for us to talk face to face with school board members from all over the state, and, with this being our 50th anniversary as a family-run company, this year’s expo was special,” said Frank Continetti, Leonard Bus Sales Director of Sales and Marketing. “Not only were we able to personally thank many of them for their support over the years, we were also able to show our on-going commitment to being a partner and trusted advisor focused on their needs.”

In addition to fleet-management services and clean-engine solutions, attendees were also able to learn more about Leonard Bus Sales award-winning customer support, market-leading brands IC Bus and Trans Tech, and one-stop-shop vehicle care.

“We know how challenging it can be for schools to keep their fleets running efficiently and safely,” said Continetti. “The convention was a perfect opportunity to show school district decision makers how Leonard Bus Sales can help them maintain a well-managed fleet – one that can save transportation dollars by reducing vehicle down time, improving fuel economy and preventing costly problems.”

Next year’s NYSSBA Expo will be held October 27-29, at the Buffalo Convention Center.
