IC Bus representatives will be onsite at the company’s STN Expo booth 321 to showcase the following innovations and vehicles, and emphasize the company’s strategies around connected vehicles, quality, and products.

 

Gasoline-Powered CE School Bus

This bus is designed to make ownership more affordable and to provide easier maintenance for school districts and contractors, and will utilize the purpose-built Power Solutions International’s (PSI) modern and highly-efficient 8.8L V8 gasoline engine paired with commercial grade transmissions.

RE Series School Bus with Cummins® L9

"Adding the proven, market-accepted Cummins L9 to the RE Series is fundamental to our strategy to provide our customers with the broadest selection of mid-range diesel engines," said Trish Reed, vice president and general manager, IC Bus. "The addition of the L9 to the RE Series school bus provides customers with a winning combination of uptime, performance and durability.”

 

Over-the-Air Programming (OTA) with OnCommand® Link

OTA programming of engine control modules (ECM) is available for IC Bus™ models powered by Navistar® proprietary engines and by Cummins® engines. OTA enables the bus driver, maintainer or fleet manager to stay current with the latest engine recalibrations and get detailed health reports available through OnCommand® Connection.

 

Pre/Post Inspection Tool

The semi-automated inspection tool harnesses the power of IC Bus’ Diamond Logic® software and leads to quicker and more accurate pre- and post-inspections. The tool is available and demos are available in the IC Bus booth.

 

Seating

Smart seating options available for viewing, including products offered by SafeGuard Seat by IMMI.

 

Windows

The newly designed windows minimize the effort needed to operate and offer greater protection against leaking. The windows are now available for order.
