Micro Bird G5
The Micro Bird G5 school bus has a reputation as the leader in safety and longevity and offers the lowest total cost of ownership in its class. With a capacity of up to 36 passengers and up to six rows of seating, as well as multiple powertrain options available, the Micro Bird G5 is a great choice for your fleet. Smooth operating, ADA-compliant wheelchair lifts from suppliers including Braun and Ricon are available for any of Micro Bird’s buses.
At Micro Bird, safety and durability work together to get children to and from school as safely as possible. The Micro Bird G5 is available in either Ford or Chevy/GMC models and can be configured for gasoline or propane fuel types. The G5 Propane is built on the Ford 6.8L engine and integrated with a ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system, while the G5 Gasoline features a Chevy/GMC 6.6L or Ford 7.3L engine. All Micro Bird buses are reinforced by heavy-gauge steel side-impact barriers and integrated child seats and three-point lap and shoulder seat belts are available for enhanced safety and versatility. A “More View” window and fully glassed entry door maximize the driver’s view of students entering and exiting.
