School activity buses

Where school bus safety meets comfort

School pride! A Blue Bird activity bus meets all the Federal safety standards for school bus safety but with the luxury appointments of drop-down DVD players, comfortable seating and individual reading lamps so students can use transit time for study time. With the Multi-Function School Activity Bus (MFSAB) regulation (read definition of multi-function school activity bus) your school bus makes a proud statement about your school...about your community.

Exceptional Comfort

"Everyone is very pleased with how comfortable our bus is. On late trips, our students use the individual reading lights to complete homework," John Linn, Transportation Director USD 432 Victoria.

 "I have a child who rides the activity bus. I couldn't get it out of my head 'what if something happened'. I knew I wouldn't feel good about our decision unless I knew the activity bus we purchased was the safest available," Randy Heller, USD 473 Chapman.
