I have been a school bus driver for a little over 7 years now and for the very first time, I have been given a brand new bus! This bus is a 2018 IC CE built by IC Bus, LLC at their plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It entered service on Aug 28, 2017, our first day of school here. She features a 240 HP Cummins ISB 6.7 diesel engine and an Allison PTS2500 5-speed transmission. The bus can transport 77 elementary school students or 51 high/middle school students. Other features include LED lights for all exterior lights, air disc brakes, air suspension, air conditioning, 4-heater interior heating system, power electric entrance door, air dump switches, No Student Left Behind system, multiple interior cameras, automatic vehicle locator system, and special to our school district, side traffic warning lights.
