Vision Series


As a staple in the school bus industry, the Blue Bird Vision continues as a frontrunner in school bus safety. The Vision’s purpose-built, angled hood offers the greatest loading and unloading zone field of vision in a conventional Type C school bus.

The Vision now comes in a choice of 3 different fuel types: Diesel, Propane and Gasoline.  Please click on any of the images for more detailed information on that particular model configuration.

Leading the industry as the most popular alternative fuel school bus, Blue Bird’s next generation Propane-Powered Vision bus, a fully integrated and purpose-built Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) bus, is engineered to the same exacting standards as other Blue Bird products. This award-winning bus is powered by the Ford 6.8L engine, which is designed and engineered to operate on propane utilizing the ROUSH CleanTech Liquid Propane Autogas Fuel System. As many satisfied customers can affirm, propane autogas is a safe, clean and affordable alternative fuel with an established infrastructure system throughout North America.

Vis Gasoline

With gasoline at a decade-low price level, the Blue Bird Gasoline Powered Vision has a lower acquisition cost than other fuel types. Additionally, maintenance and repairs are easy when a majority of your mechanics are trained to work on gasoline engines and you can refuel almost anywhere. A proven partnership with Ford and ROUSH CleanTech makes the Blue Bird Gasoline Powered Vision another reliable choice for your fleet.

Blue Bird is the only major manufacturer to offer a Type C gasoline-powered school bus. Utilizing much of the same proven technology and engine architecture as their class-leading propane-autogas powered bus, Blue Bird’s new gasoline bus will offer the same reliability and durability that customers expect — at a lower acquisition cost. Additionally, Blue Bird is standing behind this new offering with a 5 year / unlimited mileage powertrain warranty.
