Micro Bird MB-II
The Micro Bird MB-II school bus is well known as the widest Type A school bus in its class thanks to its extra-wide oval body. Offering flexible configuration options for superior comfort and a capacity of up to 20 passengers in three or four rows, the MB-II can safely accommodate all of your ambulatory and special needs transportation.
The Micro Bird MB-II is renowned for its superior maneuverability and adaptability. Available in either Ford or Chevy/GMC models, the MB-II can be configured with a variety of lengths and interior roof heights, and features either a Chevy/GMC 4.3L or 6.6L or Ford 7.3L gasoline engine. For those looking for a cleaner, alternative fuel option, the MB-II is also available with a Ford 6.8L propane engine integrated with a ROUSH CleanTech propane fuel system. The Micro Bird MB-II offers a single-leaf wheelchair door that meets FMVSS/CMVSS 206 standards and is the only lift-equipped single rear wheel vehicle offered in the market. 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.
