The BE Series Bus by Navistar

The Big Bus in a Small Body
As wrestling competitors know, bigger is not necessarily better. Strength is what counts. So if you need to carry 14 to 30 students in a real bus – not a van – the BE Series bus from IC Bus has you covered. With an all-steel body design and thick 16-gauge side sheets, it’s solidly built to last a full 12 years, not just 7 like a typical Type A bus. And inside, it’s every bit as tall and wide as a longer bus.



Buses carry more than passengers and backpacks. They carry future brain surgeons, political science teachers, jazz band clarinetists and purple-heart heroes. They carry dreams of all sizes. Nobody grasps this more than us. Because at IC Bus, we believe the only way to build a better bus, is to understand what goes into one.


We provided a lighted steering-wheel-mounted entrance door control and eight-way light switches to safeguard children at each stop. Visual and audible alarms for low fuel, oil, voltage, coolant and high temperature add a measure of safety. An electric entrance door and a pebble tread stepwell provide for easy entrance and exit. And to make sure the bus is completely empty at the end of the day, our Leave No Student Behind® safety system helps ensure there are no students still on board.

For mechanics, we made maintenance easy with a lightweight 3-piece fiberglass hood and coordinated system service intervals. As with all our buses, IC Bus has you covered throughout the entire ownership experience with our complete bus diagnostic checkup computer system, an expansive parts distribution system and an unmatched dealer network for 24/7 support.

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