Blue Bird Vision— Where Safety Is Never Compromised

February 5, 2020by cowest

In our ongoing Vision Safety Series, we have touched on different areas of passenger safety. These areas include overall statistics in everyday travel, as well as the importance of a driver’s line of sight, which alone sets our Blue Bird Vision apart; but what about how a bus is engineered from the start? Our Blue Bird buses are built with safety as our number one priority.

Listed below are a few of the Blue Bird Vision standard safety features.

One-piece Roof Bows, which stretch from floor line to floor line
Blue Bird’s custom designed one-piece roof bow system ensures safe student transportation with an exceptionally strong structure. This safety cage is the backbone of our solid bus design.
Four (4) Piece Flat Windshield with best-in-class line of sight
The Vision provides exceptional forward visibility and unique mirror systems that improve driver awareness and increase the safety of children around the bus.
• Frame Mounted Fuel Tanks surrounded by steel chassis structure
Our frame mounted fuel tanks are surrounded by the steel chassis structure to provide                                   maximum fuel system protection.
• Tightest Turn Geometry Steering offers best-in-class turn radius
Superior maneuverability limits the infringement on surrounding lanes of traffic when turning corners, and it also virtually eliminates the need to back up the bus in tight cul-de-sacs.
• E-Z light Check System allows drivers to check every exterior light with the flip of a switch
Blue Bird’s E-Z Light Check System allows drivers to check all lights, which is outlined in CDL requirements, with the flip of a switch.
• Standard Colorado Racking Load and Kentucky Pole Test Construction
Blue Bird continues to be the only bus manufacturer today that offers standard Racking Load and Kentucky Pole tests. Read more about the test here.

More than 550,000 school buses transport 26 million school children to and from school every day. The responsibility for the safety of our future generations is paramount, which is why corners are never cut with our Blue Bird buses. Our next installment will explore another of the many layers in bus safety.
