Hi everyone. I was wondering what proportion of the school bus market is controlled by Bluebird. I was thinking that they commanded roughly 35% of all school bus sales. Does anyone have a better figure?

Well IC was very close to 50% as of last year. Thomas is second. So no, Blue Bird is lower.

The gap is narrowing from what I understand with all three major manufacturers.

Keep in mind that the industry in general is way down from the 90s and from a few years ago.

IC has to be losing some market share due to not offering a front engine type D.
