Perry Rand Transportation rebuild shop destroyed

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere but NS-based Perry Rand Transportation's bus rebuild shop in Moncton was destroyed by fire this weekend. They still have their bus sales and parts facility in NS and the rebuild shop used to be busy doing in-house work for their own fleet prior to selling their school and charter fleet to Stock. The Moncton shop also performed pre-delivery inspections of new buses and custom modifications for clients (wheelchair lifts, bookmobile interiors, graphics, etc).

It's too bad as I haven't seen many bus operators who could keep 20+ year old buses running in like new condition. They are the only Thomas Bus approved body rebuilder in the Maritimes.

The fire was huge and if you look through their facebook photos you can see the massive timbers that fueled the blaze, along with all the paints, plastics and other combustibles. I hope the old International-Harvester school bus stored out back survived. It was a collector's item! Thankfully nobody was injured.
