Blue Bird Introduces New School Bus Parts Replacement Program

Posted on August 9, 2019

FORT VALLEY, Ga. — Blue Bird has launched a new school bus parts replacement program: X-Parts.

The new program features service and maintenance parts for all makes and models of buses, with parts sold exclusively through Blue Bird’s dealer network, according to a news release from the school bus manufacturer.

"Blue Bird is always looking for ways to save school districts and school bus contractors money — before, during, and after the initial bus purchase," said Phil Horlock, president and CEO of the school bus manufacturer. "With X-Parts, districts will see savings in their service and maintenance dollars, allowing them to put more money back into the classroom."

Backed by Blue Bird’s one-year, unlimited mileage warranty, all X-Parts meet or exceed the original supplier specifications, according to the manufacturer. At launch, Blue Bird said that X-Parts’ product range consists of engine and brake parts, and that the program's product portfolio will progressively expand to meet customer demands.

Additionally, engine components include new and remanufactured injectors, turbochargers, water pumps, diesel particulate filters (DPFs), oil coolers, and high-pressure oil and fuel pumps. The engine applications include Cat C7, Cummins 6.7L, Maxxforce 7, and Maxxforce DT.
