We started off as an offshoot from our parent company LA Freightliner, a large heavy duty truck dealership which is part of Daimler NA (which owns the Thomas Built Buses brand) in an attempt to take our heavy duty experience to the school bus market. We quickly climbed the ranks in the bus industry as we introduced the Thomas Built Bus brand to all the school districts in California, Nevada and Hawaii.

Although we are a school bus dealership, its our special relationship with our parent company, Velocity Vehicle Group and their other divisions, that makes us a cut above our competitors, we can help you everywhere. We are the ultimate parts distributor in all of California, Nevada, Arizona & Hawaii for practically all Bus & Truck parts, old & new. Multiple dealerships provide greater support for bus service throughout California, Arizona, Hawaii and Nevada, and our bus salesmen are the experts in their fields, with experienced staff that have been in the bus industry for over 75 years. BusWest—We are the bus experts.
