​Thomas has designed a bus that is not only safe, but also easy to maintain, comfortable to drive, and durable enough to withstand the rigors of everyday use. The Type A bus begins with a dependable GM or Ford chassis, on which Thomas builds a unique steel cage body. Thomas engineers designed a rugged framework of one-piece, skirt-to-skirt roof bows and heavy duty crash rails built to withstand the rigors of everyday use. Once this steel cage is in place, 16-gauge side panels and continuous roof sections are fastened.

The toughest Type A in the market, the Thomas Minotour has become the leading choice in small bus transportation for institutions that need to provide safe, reliable transportation.
