“Blue Bird's electric school buses play a critical role in zero-emission student transportation across the United States.

We continue to build out our capabilities to ensure the safe and reliable deployment of electric buses putting student and community health first for present and future generations. The launch of Blue Bird Energy Services is another vital building block of sustainable transportation solutions.”
