School Buses - CE Series

Electric School Buses for Sale - IC Bus ECE Series

The CE Series, from IC Bus and Maxim Truck & Trailer, carries up to 83 students. It is also equipped with the latest in safety innovations and technology, including the Leave No Student Behind® safety system that comes standard on every bus in the CE Series.

IC Bus's goal was to build a school bus that would not only provide the utmost protection for students, but get high marks from the people who buy, use and maintain it. So they built an IC Bus™ integrated chassis, with all-steel cage construction, 16-gauge steel side sheets and 18,500-lb. rear steel-spring suspension.
