Did you know that riding a school bus is 13 times safer than riding in the family vehicle? Kids are 50 times more likely to get to school safely on a bus rather than driving themselves or riding with friends.
In fact, the most dangerous part of riding a school bus is getting on and off. It’s vital that passengers take their time, pay attention to surrounding traffic and make sure that the bus driver can see them at all times.
Our Type C buses feature Saf-T-Net construction, including side skirt reinforcement, extended roof bows and a welded header and rafter system to ensure maximum passenger safety.
Thomas Built Type D buses feature double-bolted body mounting clips. The roof bows extend all the way to the bottom of side panels to provide superior protection in the event of a side impact.
Our Type A buses are built with the strength of a full-size school bus with the added features of safety cage body construction with one-piece, skirt-to-skirt roof bows and two internal roof crash rails for rollover protection.
