What’s your favorite school bus?

One thing I learned quickly when I joined SBF seven years ago is that not only are our readers passionate about transporting students safely, many of them are passionate about school buses in general.

For instance, I spoke with industry veteran Louk Markham several years ago (he’s since retired) about a book he wrote on vehicles manufactured by Crown Coach Corp., including school buses.

Of Crown Coach school buses, Markham said he appreciates the quality that was put into their production. 

And in our forums, many members have discussed over the years their favorite school bus manufacturer and specific models that they are fond of. In this thread that was started in 2001, some members even shared thoughts on their ideal bus and the features it would have.

What is your favorite school bus, and why is it your favorite? Post a comment below or send an e-mail to [email protected]. If you have photos of your favorite school bus, send those as well, along with some information about the bus.

Until next time,
