Values & Beliefs A heritage of past success and a clear purpose for the future.

While it's easy to say, "we are committed to excellence," Thomas Built Buses' long and passionate history proves it. From start to finish, we are focused on delivering a superior customer experience, as we have been since Perley A. Thomas started building streetcars in 1916. That means paying attention to the smallest detail in order to help improve safety and reliability. It means training customers to service their own buses. And, it means being here to offer support whenever and wherever it's needed.

Inspired by the work we do, Thomas Built employees build quality into each bus we construct. We treat our buses as if our own children were riding on them, and often, they are. This kind of pride in what we do will always be paramount to the Thomas Bus culture. Because, when our buses are out there on the road, every mile matters.

"Our vehicles are made of aluminum, composites and steel, but our employees put their hearts into every vehicle we build." Read more about our parent company, Daimler.
