Big, fascinating and more than a little bit complicated. Those are all terms which could be applied to the bus aftermarket--the multimillion dollar business of delivering the repair parts and service needed to keep the nation's 50,000-plus transit buses rolling. For the people in charge of maintaining a city's bus fleet, knowing how and where to get the parts--and at the best price--is vital. Large transit systems usually stock from 6,000 to 7,000 different parts at one time. While many parts are available from the company that built the particular bus--either AM General, Flexible or GMC (General Motors Corporation)--a good percentage of needed parts must be gotten elsewhere.
