Creative Bus Sales rebrands to Model 1 Commercial Vehicles


Creative Bus Sales, the nation’s largest bus and transportation services dealer, has rebranded to Model 1 Commercial Vehicles. The new name and brand identity reflects the evolution beyond bus sales to also include distribution, service, parts, financing and insurance for a variety of internal combustion, alternative fuel, and electric commercial vehicles.

The Model 1 name represents creativity, continuous improvement, and going first – all qualities that have defined the company for decades. The company’s goal is to use its size, stature and innovative mindset to drive the transit industry into the future by normalizing alternative fuel fleets and exploring manufacturer collaborations.

“For more than 40 years, we’ve been Creative Bus Sales. The move to Model 1 is a significant decision for us,” said Tony Matijevich, president. “We’ve always had an appetite and ability to pioneer new spaces. Our goal is to lead the industry into what’s next – solving transportation issues with visionary thinking. Moving forward for us means welcoming the future. We’re the same team with a new generation of leaders, and I’m excited to see how the team embodies our company’s purpose: to go first.”

Model 1 represents more than 20 top commercial vehicles (bus, van, EV, and other alternative fuel) manufacturers across the country. The new brand identity and name will be rolled out across all of the company’s locations and communication channels in the coming weeks.
