From the first school bus built by Blue Bird in 1927, the success of the company has been based on innovation and customer service. In fact, responding to the customer is how it all began. A friend of Albert L. Luce, Sr., the founder of Blue Bird, asked for a bus to transport his workers. This request gave Luce the opportunity to create the first Blue Bird school bus and spearheaded the beginning of a highly successful corporation.
There have been many changes since then. Blue Bird's pioneering spirit and advances in technology have helped create top-of-the-line school buses that are flagships for the school bus industry. All Blue Bird school buses are manufactured with the highest safety standards.
For a school bus builder, the first and most important concern is safety. There can be no compromise, and no short cuts. Blue Bird has been raising the standard of safety for over seventy years. From our all-steel construction to our larger windshield to securing the safety of our special needs passengers, safety is priority one in all our bus lines.
Blue Bird offers four lines of school buses, all built and designed with the experience of the industry leader in school buses. Just some of the innovations blue bird has brought to the Industry are:
