North Central Bus and Equipment began selling school buses in the early 1960’s. Over time, North Central added to our product lines and started selling Commercial Buses as well as light and medium duty Truck Equipment. Today, we are the authorized Blue Bird and Micro Bird School Bus dealer in both MN and SD. In addition, we are authorized to sell Elkhart Coach, StarTrans, and Arboc Commercial Buses as well as Transit Works, BraunAbility and Abilitrax vans.  North Central also carries a wide range of Truck Equipment products for all classes of work and service vehicles.
