Flxible Bus Rally Held in Loudonville, Ohio

Wed Jul 13, 2016

LOUDONVILLE, Ohio - Every two years, Loudonville hosts a Flxible Bus Rally to celebrate and remember the motor coaches manufactured for decades in the village.

With a Saturday parade through town, opportunities to see various restored motorcoaches up close and a chance to reminisce with former Flxible employees, the rally is always a favorite for locals and visiting Flxible coach owners.

But this year’s rally, held Thursday through Saturday, is drawing additional attention because it coincides with a Wednesday liquidation auction of all the remaining personal property from Flxible Company and Motor Coach Industries, another motorcoach company whose service center later occupied the plant.
