The CE Series Bus by Navistar

The Student Guardian
Our goal was to build a school bus that would not only provide the utmost protection for students, but get high marks from the people who buy, use and maintain it. So we built an IC Bus™ integrated chassis, with all-steel cage construction, 16-gauge steel side sheets and 18,500-lb. rear steel-spring suspension. If you need a bus that’s safe, strong, and powerful, we’ve got you covered.



To understand how to build a better bus, we believe it’s important to remember how much is riding on one. That’s why, before a single weld is laid or bolt is torqued, we remind ourselves that buses are as much about the moments that go on inside as they are about the sheet metal that goes on the outside. We believe that is one of the reasons IC Buses are chosen to carry more of this country’s precious cargo than any other brand of bus.


A school bus’s primary goal is safeguarding children at every stop. So we placed lighted controls for the entrance door, warning lights and other high-use items on the steering wheel. We increased the height and width of the entrance door to keep students more visible. And to make sure the bus is completely empty at the end of the day, we made our Leave No Student Behind® safety system standard equipment. It’s a combination of safety features the competition simply can’t match.

For mechanics, we made maintenance easy with a lightweight Easy Tilt hood, coordinated service intervals, and a self-diagnosing Diamond Logic electrical system. 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.
