Blue Bird exceeds 400 electric school buses delivered or on order

School bus manufacturer Blue Bird Corporation has now exceeded 400 electric-powered school buses delivered or on order. With momentum building, electric-bus sales are expected to increase further before the end of 2021.

Blue Bird is the only manufacturer that produces and sells today all three school-bus body configurations in EV: Type A, C and D buses.

We achieved almost three-fold growth in electric bus sales last year and are pleased to see fast-paced growth again as we start off 2021. Our commitment to providing safe, clean-power transportation for our children is not new to us. We have more than 19,000 low-emissions Blue Bird propane buses on the road, 4-times the number of all of our competitors combined, transporting more than a million children to school each day. The shift to zero-emissions transportation is a reality and a commitment for us. With more than 7,000 active customers today, we’re excited to be leading the industry move toward zero-emissions school buses. I would expect to see the number of Blue Bird electric buses on the road grow to over 1,000 next year.

—Phil Horlock, president and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation
