5/20/14 - Orrick Devastation
As many people in the community know, the town of Orrick was recently devastated by a tornado. The tornado damaged homes and uprooted families. Apple Bus Company wants to help out so we have made the decision to sponsor a local family in Orrick. The Newsome family lost their house and nearly all of their belongings in the tornado. Jamie Newsome is an employee of the Orrick School District and her daughter Rebecca is an 8th grade student in Orrick. We are raising a monetary collection for the family to use in the purchase of new clothes, supplies, and household goods. We would like to encourage others as well to consider donating funds to the Newsome family. If you so choose to give, please forward your donations to Apple Bus Company-Attention Becky Fischer 230 E. Main St. Cleveland MO 64734 or call 816-618-3310.

6/30/12 - Thoughts from Mike
The past few weeks have been a humbling experience for me as district after district awarded transportation contracts to Apple Bus. Humbled by those that give so much of their time and talent to make Apple Bus the envy of the local transportation industry. Humbled by the school boards that believe in Apple Bus to the point they are willing to award to us time and time again even when we are not the low bidder. For those of you joining Apple Bus, “Welcome”, and hopefully, as time passes you will feel that you have become a part of something special. Mike Oyster
