IC Bus offers a wide range of specifications, including seating capacity options, undercarriage pass-through luggage compartments, automatic entry doors and the Leave No Student Behind® safety system that helps make sure your bus is empty after the destination is reached.
IC Bus’s CE Series and RE Series school buses are long-lasting, reliable and easily serviced. With max capacities ranging from 29–90 passengers and options for a diesel, propane or gas powertrain, every IC Bus comes with a long list of options to customize and enhance your fleet.
IC Bus’s CE Series and RE Series commercial buses are built from the same platform as their renowned school buses and offer comfort, ease of operation and hassle-free maintenance. With max capacities ranging from 52–56 passengers and industry-leading Cummins diesel engines, the IC Bus commercial buses are ready to meet your needs.
IC Bus is charging ahead with an electrified version of their flagship CE school bus. The Electric CE Series model is a zero-emission electric school bus option, lowering the total cost of ownership and offering user-friendly options and features.
IC buses are produced by IC Bus, a wholly owned subsidiary of Navistar International that has one assembly plant in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
IC Bus was originally founded in 1933 as Ward Body Works, a bus manufacturer that filed for bankruptcy and rebranded as the American Transportation Corporation (AmTran) in 1980. Navistar International acquired AmTran in 1991 and later changed the company name to International Truck and Bus in 2000. In 2002, Navistar again changed the company name to IC Corporation to separate its bus production from its International Trucks manufacturing division. And in 2008, the company name was changed for a final time to IC Bus.
IC stands for “Integrated Coach,” which refers to how IC buses are designed and assembled almost completely under the Navistar umbrella. The body and chassis are assembled within the same manufacturing facility and use the same chassis and hood as medium-duty, International-brand trucks.
IC Bus manufactures Type C and D school buses as well as commercial buses.
CE Series: Introduced in 2001, the CE Series school bus is built on the International 3300 Type C cowled bus chassis.
CE Series Commercial: The CE Series Commercial is a midsize commercial bus built on the same Type C cowled bus chassis as the CE Series school bus.
RE Series: In production since 1996, the RE Series school bus is built on the International 3000 Type D rear-engine stripped chassis.
RE Series Commercial: The RE Series Commercial bus is built on the same Type D chassis as the RE Series school bus.
The IC Bus CE Series and CE Series Commercial buses are equipped with a Cummins B6.7L diesel engine, but are also available with a Power Solutions International (PSI) 8.8L gasoline or propane engine.
Both the RE Series and RE Series Commercial feature the Cummins L9 diesel engine.
IC Bus produces the Electric CE Series with two battery options that offer the longest single-charge range in the industry: a 210 kWh battery with a range of up 135 miles and a 315 kWh battery with a range of more than 200 miles. The Electric CE Series is powered by a high voltage lithium-ion NMC battery that can be charged using standard AC and DCFC chargers.
The CE Series school bus is available in a number of different configurations and can fit 29–83 passengers, while the CE Series Commercial can transport up to 52 passengers.
The RE Series school bus offers IC’s highest passenger capacity with room for 72–90 passengers, making it ideal for longer routes and bigger school districts. The RE Series Commercial is IC’s largest commercial bus with the ability to transport up to 56 passengers.
The cost of an IC bus can vary greatly depending on the model, seating configuration, application, powertrain, etc.

DriverFirst™ is IC Bus’s driver-centric approach to designing buses that appeal to drivers and maximize their comfort. Some of the ways this philosophy is evident in every IC Bus include accessible storage, a three-piece windshield with no center post to improve driver visibility, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel for customization and increased maneuverability, multiple driver seat options for ergonomic optimization, the widest bus doors in the industry for ease of entry and exit, uniform steps for optimal driver alignment, and interchangeable BTI seating.
IC Bus aims to build the safest, more reliable vehicles on the road. Electronic Stability Control and the Bendix® Wingman® Advanced™ Collision Mitigation system come standard on all IC buses as well as a crossing control gate that alerts nearby vehicles and pedestrians of passengers crossing the street. A high-visibility windshield and side mirrors combined with the IC Bus Full-View Camera Technology™ by Rosco give drivers a full view around the bus so they can focus on driving while keeping kids safe, and the Leave No Student Behind® alarm system guarantees no students are left behind on the bus at the end of the route. The CE Series is also equipped with the SmartTrac™ Hydraulic ABS System to optimize braking with less weight and noise.
