Blue Bird now has 400 electric school buses delivered or on order

School bus manufacturer Blue Bird is rapidly ramping its EV production. The company, which produces electric versions of all three popular school bus body configurations—Type A, C and D buses—now has 400 electric school buses either delivered or on order, and it anticipates further growth this year.

“We achieved almost three-fold growth in electric bus sales last year and are pleased to see fast-paced growth again as we start off 2021,” said CEO Phil Horlock. “With more than 7,000 active customers today, we’re excited to be leading the industry move toward zero-emissions school buses. I would expect to see the number of Blue Bird electric buses on the road grow to over 1,000 next year.”

Blue Bird’s EV Ecosystem helps dealers and school districts access funding, infrastructure and training, and provides operating assistance to help them through the transition to e-buses.

Blue Bird manufactures school buses at two facilities in Fort Valley, Georgia. Its Micro Bird joint venture operates a manufacturing facility in Drummondville, Quebec.
