)-- A-Z Bus Sales, Inc., a leading provider of transportation and fire apparatus solutions, was awarded a portion of the cutaway category for the AZNIGP (National Institute of Government Purchasing) Cooperative, Arizona Chapter (Contract #ADSPO16-102777). The contract paves the way for Arizona non-profit organizations, state agencies, and Indian Tribes to purchase a quality bus, with lower priced options, from A-Z Bus Sales, a leading transportation solutions provider in the state of Arizona.
The roughly $35 million cutaway portion is available to organizations that are both federally and state funded. These entities include non-profit organizations, all state agencies, and Indian Tribes. The contract does not provide a provision for purchases by private organizations, however, private organizations can purchase directly from A-Z Bus Sales.
The bus selected, as part of the purchasing cooperative, is the Elkhart Coach
, a highly configurable commercial and transit bus, seating up to 25 passengers or up to 16 passengers and two wheel chairs. “This is a great bus for the Arizona bus transportation market,” said Kelly Mills, A-Z Bus’s Commercial and Transit Sales Manager for Arizona. “The Elkhart coach Bus is not only configurable with many options, but is the ideal size bus for most of the Arizona market with lower priced options over the competitions.”
“We’re committed to serving the Arizona Market,” said Karl Esguerra, Director of Commercial & Transit Sales at A-Z Bus. “A-Z Bus sales had its start in Arizona in 1976, later moving its headquarters to Southern California. We’ve remained in the state, specifically as the Elkhart Coach Bus dealer, selling 19 Elkhart Buses to the city of Tucson just a few years ago. We’re committed to Arizona.”
A-Z Bus Sales has been part of the CalACT Cooperative in California for over 23 years with an impeccable reputation of servicing CalACT Cooperative customers and providing them transportation solutions. “We bring with us not only our Arizona heritage, but a true understanding of the needs of customers making purchases through a cooperative,” said Leo Lovato, V.P. of Sales and Marketing. A-Z Bus Sales will be attending the NIGP Arizona Chapter Conference and Product Showcase in Mesa, Arizona, October 15, 2015. On hand will be the Commercial and Transit Sales team and the Elkhart Coach Bus.
