Blue-Bird is a plug-in electric school bus startup that has received a good response to its latest electric Type C & D configuration school buses.

Vision Type C School Bus To Help Florida Improve Air Quality
The Vision Type C school bus can help Florida improve its air quality. Since the all-new electric school bus version is the latest and cleanest fueled bus option currently available, it will contribute to reducing the pollution in the air of Florida. As of now, Florida is one of the top 15 states listed under the worst air quality criteria. According to the President of Florida Transportation Systems, Chris Rustman, “Introducing the all-electric school bus is the right step toward a cleaner and healthier air for our communities, not to mention the lower total cost of ownership for school districts.” The school bus in the Vision Type C category was first introduced in 2003.
Blue Bird To Make Deliveries Before The End Of 2018

The company has already completed the required certification testing and the product is now in pre-production stage.
