Every school year, thousands of students across the country rely on school buses to reliably get to and from school and their home. School buses are an essential form of transportation for students all over North America. Without these buses, students would not be able to safely get to and from school and other school-related activities. These buses are instantly recognizable while driving along the streets of Springfield, MA, Wilbraham, MA, Chicopee, MA, Holyoke, MA, and beyond. School buses are also commonly featured on the big screen. Films like Forrest Gump and TV shows like The Magic School Bus all feature a school bus transporting students to school. This bright yellow paint color as well as the different lighting and safety features, like the extendable stop sign and seat belts, are all designed to make sure that the commute to school goes as smoothly as possible. There are new regulations that work to further protect passengers too. For example, federal regulations require safety features such as seat belts, passing crash tests, LED brake lights, GPS tracking systems, exterior stop arms, and retroreflective and exterior cameras. You can rest assured that each school bus can safely transport students to their destination.
Clients can choose different types of school buses depending on their needs, such as the number seats. There are four types of school buses. Here are the different types:
- Type A: This is the smallest school bus; these buses are based on cutaway van chassis.
- Type B: These school buses are small school buses that have a bodied on bare front-engine chassis.
- Type C: These buses are bodied on a cowled medium-duty truck chassis. Type C school buses are what people typically imagine when thinking about the yellow school bus.
- Type D: This school bus has a body on bare "forward control" or "pusher" chassis. Type D school buses are the largest school bus.
