Starcraft Bus completes 25,000th bus

Posted on January 30, 2012

Starcraft Bus completed its 25,000th bus. Initially ordered on Oct. 7, 2011, the milestone was reached in January as Creative Bus Sales, located in Chino, Calif., took delivery for Nevada Regional Transportation Commission, allowing Starcraft Bus to reach this landmark number.

"We are excited to have reached this milestone for our company," said David Wright, president of Starcraft Bus and Federal Coach. "Over the years, we have grown from a small shuttle bus company to America's largest and it wouldn't have been possible without the support and commitment of our team members and dealers. We continue to look for new ways to improve the design, engineering and quality of every shuttle bus that we produce and we look forward to building our next 25,000 buses."

Starcraft Bus joined the shuttle bus industry in 1998 by building its first bus, the Allstar. Over the last several years, Starcraft Bus has introduced several new models including the Starquest, Ultrastar, Starlite, XLT, Xpress and Prodigy XP.

Starcraft Bus, a division of Forest River Inc., is owned by Berkshire Hathaway and located in Goshen, Ind.
