Chassis Advantages

  • Blue Bird’s trademark one-piece roof bows provide maximum roll-over strength.
  • A variety of seat plans and configurations, including track seating and special needs options, offer customers optimal flexibility to meet specific passenger needs. Available capacities up to 30 are available on the Micro Bird.
  • One piece roof sheets from window top to window top add extra strength and durability to the Blue Bird All American Rear Engine.
  • Four full-length, 16 gauge exterior side rub rails are positioned to offer optimum strength and protection and are specifically designed to resist penetration on side collisions; rails are dimpled at bottom fasteners to facilitate drainage and prevent corrosion.
  • Drip molding visors are embossed in the Blue Bird All American’s roof sheets over each window, minimizing corrosion by eliminating a need for an additional metal joint and permitting ventilation during inclement weather.
  • A massive 16-gauge internal continuous side plate of steel armor above and below floor line; these side plates create a wall of protection around occupants.
  • Comfort Aire, Blue Bird’s integrated air conditioning offering, provides greater efficiency and quality than competitor aftermarket systems as the Comfort Aire system is designed in harmony with other OEM installed components.
  • Optional special needs equipment ensures that all students may enjoy a safe and secure ride.
  • Micro Bird pdf bodies may be mounted on either a Ford or GM chassis (both chassis are available with diesel or gasoline engines); all Micro Birds are mounted to the chassis using thick rubber isolators for smoother rides.
