Thomas Built has high standards based on a simple philosophy: build the kind of bus we want our own children to ride. That’s why Thomas Built engineering and design, construction methods, technology and even customer service are guided by bus safety.
The Minotour® school bus is an efficient and maneuverable vehicle packed with all the safety features and rugged engineering of our bigger buses. And, unlike most passenger vans, the Minotour meets and exceeds all FMVSS and CMVSS for school buses. The Minotour school bus is designed with ample safety features to protect your precious cargo.
Over the years, the Saf-T-Liner® C2 school bus has earned a reputation for safety and efficiency. It offers outstanding maneuverability, exceptional driver ergonomics and best-in-class visibility among Type C buses. Yet it’s also one of the most innovative vehicles around. It revolutionized the school bus industry by introducing BusWise® Technologies, a full suite of robust safety, efficiency and serviceability features. That’s innovation for the sake of every kid’s commute. That’s Thomas Built Buses.
Thomas Built Buses has been moving the industry forward for more than 100 years. Now we’re driving it in a whole new way with the Saf-T-Liner® C2 Jouley™ electric bus. The C2 Jouley is emissions-free, noise pollution-free and fossil fuel-free, helping you save operating costs, and maybe even the planet. Ideal for in-town routes, the Saf-T-Liner® C2 Jouley electric bus is the latest chapter in our joint commitment with Daimler to providing proven, sustainable solutions today. And tomorrow.
When it comes to school buses, any improvement in efficiency can make a big difference. Our Saf-T-Liner® EFX has plenty of examples. First, it has seating for up to 90 passengers and a wider loading aisle, providing tremendous flexibility for whatever the school year brings. The cockpit is designed for driver comfort and safety, with ample leg room and optimized access to controls. It also offers better visibility and easier steering. And our engine cover allows quick, tool-free access to the engine, fluids and belts, keeping routine maintenance time to a minimum.
School bus routes come in all shapes and sizes: short and hilly, long and bumpy or all of the above. The Saf-T-Liner® HDX from Thomas Built Buses is built to handle them all. This model is designed to keep drivers comfortable, with features like standard tilt and telescoping steering wheel and optional adjustable pedals. It offers a pleasant ride for up to 90 passengers with air conditioning, coach-style seating and heavy-duty shock absorbers.
