Take advantage of state funding and OSC bids for your next bus purchase!
Funding Deadline extended to Oct. 31

The Ohio Department of Education has recently announced that the School Bus Purchase Program application has reopened for districts that did not fully accept funds during the original application window. ODE records indicate that your district has funds available, but you must submit a completed “Acceptance and Assurances” document and bus quote by October 31.

As an OSC member, you can easily take advantage of the OSC Bus Purchasing Program at no cost! OSC’s Fall bus bids are available for quote to satisfy funding requirement for School Bus Purchase Program. By participating in this bid, you will receive the November discounted bus bid pricing and side-by-side bid comparison summary.
