Leonard Bus Sales Delivers First Trans Tech Buses from New Garden City Park Location

July 11, 2013, Garden City Park, N.Y. – Leonard Bus Sales recently made the first delivery of new Trans Tech buses processed through its Garden City Park location. The buses, four Trans Tech STs, were delivered to Independent Coach Corporation in Hewlett, N.Y., in recent days.

“The new Garden City Park Location allows us to bring these New York-made Trans Tech buses directly to our customers in the New York City and Long Island area,” said Leonard Bus Sales President Mike Leonard. “And we will be here to help give the Independent Coach Corporation all the support and service they need to keep their new buses and their entire fleet running efficiently long into the future.”

Independent Coach Corporation has reliably provided pupil transportation to the residents of Long Island for over 70 years, with a mission to transport passengers safely and efficiently.  Michael Fabrizio, vice president of Independent Coach Corporation, said the service his company receives from its suppliers is critical to his company’s success.

“That’s where service comes in, when it’s time for a run it must be done on time and every time,” said Fabrizio. “We’re counting on Trans Tech and Leonard Bus Sales to help us continue our tradition of excellent and reliable service throughout the life of these beautiful new buses.”

The four Trans Tech STs were delivered to Independent Coach Corporation’s Railroad Avenue location in Hewlett, N.Y., where the new buses were added to Independent’s operational fleet of approximately 300 vehicles.
