My buying experience with Midwest Transit was fantastic. I looked all over the USA for the right bus and found it in Indiana. Tom & the Folks treated me with respect and I felt like a part of their family before I departed with my new bus. 5 stars in my book and I will treasure this buying experience forever. What a great day! Thanks!

Thank you so much for all your help! Also, send my thanks to your amazing team. From Jim picking me up at the airport, Joe taking me around and showing me the bus and even giving me some invaluable driving tips, to Grisel helping finalize the paperwork. (and anyone else who had a part in the process) Midwest Transit Equipment is awesome and the next time I'm bus shopping, I won't hesitate to look you guys up. (I also plan to send some people your way as I have a lot of people asking where I got my bus)
