Low Bus Bids July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2025 [Excel]

The low bus bids are based on capacity, fuel and type (A1, A2, C, D). If a bus that is chosen that is not on the list, it will not be approved through the Maine School Bus Purchasing Program. If you add additional features on the school bus, your school will be responsible for the additional charge. If you have questions, please call Cheryl Brackett at 207-446-3019 or email at:
