Blue Bird stays committed to continuous improvement to make its school buses even safer.

Starting in the fall of 2024, Blue Bird buses will carry an unprecedented array of safety

For the first time in student transportation history, new Blue Bird buses will be equipped with three-point seat belts as standard protection for all student passengers.

collision mitigation systems (by Mobileye) being added to the currently-standard
electronic stability control (ESC).
