Starcraft named top Ford shuttle bus account

Posted on February 7, 2011

For 2010, and the fifth year in a row, Ford announced that Starcraft Bus is the top
volume pool account for shuttle buses. For five consecutive years, Starcraft Bus has purchased and sold more Ford E350/E450 bus chassis than any other bus manufacturer in the U.S.

The reason for Starcraft’s ongoing success has been its expanding and diversified product line of shuttle buses and increased sales in all types of commercial buses manufactured by the company. Starcraft Bus continues to be North America’s largest shuttle bus company five years running, according to a company press release.

“We are proud to receive this award from Ford for the fifth year in a row and believe this is a reflection of the high quality product that we deliver utilizing the Ford chassis," said David Wright, GM of Starcraft Bus and Federal Coach. "We continue to raise the bar in quality, safety and customer satisfaction and are proud to partner with Ford and their tough, time-tested, E-Series chassis.”

Starcraft Bus, a division of Forest River Inc., services many markets, including hotels, churches, retirement centers, tour operators and all aspects of public and private transportation. Starcraft Bus builds on Ford and GM chassis and is ADA compliant, QVM certified, ISO certified and Altoona-tested.
