Blue Bird Corporation
Founded in Fort Valley in 1927, Blue Bird Corp. is one of the world's leading bus manufacturers, delivering thousands of school buses, commercial buses and recreational vehicles to the market each year.
The only dedicated school bus company in the world, Blue Bird continues to set industry standards with its innovative designs and strong emphasis on reliability and safety.
From the first school bus built by Blue Bird in 1927, the success of the company has been based on innovation and customer service. In fact, responding to the customer is how Blue Bird first developed. A friend of Albert L. Luce Sr., the founder of Blue Bird, asked for a bus to transport his workers. This request gave Luce the opportunity to create the first Blue Bird school bus and spearheaded the beginning of a highly successful corporation.
A lot has changed since then. Blue Bird's pioneering spirit and advances in technology have helped create top-of-the-line school buses that are flagships for the school bus industry. All Blue Bird school buses are manufactured with the highest safety standards.
Blue Bird's knowledge and experience in the school bus and motor coach markets made for a smooth transition into the commercial bus segment. In the early 1990s, Blue Bird developed a plan to provide customized, innovative and economical buses to all sectors of the commercial market.
