The AE Series Bus by Navistar

Introducing the first and only fully integrated Type A
The AE Series goes far beyond where any Type A has gone before. It’s the first-ever Type A to be fully integrated, which means you get one, and only one, manufacturer who is absolutely accountable for all aspects of its proprietary design. Plus, it doesn’t just go the distance, it’s designed to have a longer lifecycle than similar products in the industry.

Its integrated design is fully backed by an extensive, experienced and unparalleled dealer network. IC Bus proudly stands behind the AE Series like we do all of our products, and supports every customer at every stage of the product lifecycle.



Michael is no different from any other 9-year-old. He wants to get into the game. Even though he lives with a disability that keeps him confined to a wheelchair, he is filled with as much heart and courage as any professional athlete. And he has never let his handicap prevent him from playing. IC Bus is proud of kids like Michael, his parents and the coaches who found a way to help him feel the spirit and camaraderie of being on a team. Because at IC Bus, we believe the only way to build a bus, is to understand what goes into one.


Taking care of you every step of the way. That’s the IC Bus difference.
