Blue Bird Announces Price Increases for Type C and D Bus Model Types

Blue Bird Corporation, the leader in electric and low-emission school buses, announced today that it will implement a price increase to offset rising material, freight and labor costs primarily driven by the global COVID-19 pandemic. The 4.0% total price increase will impact all net selling prices for Type C and Type D model activity and school buses ordered on or after Tuesday, March 1st, 2022.

“As we enter 2022, the school bus industry continues to face challenging and unprecedented times,” said Matthew Stevenson, President and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation. “According to a recent Labor Department report, inflation grew by 7% in 2021, the fastest 12-month increase in nearly 40 years. We continue to work with our supplier partners to limit the negative impact, but felt it was necessary to make this adjustment to our bus pricing. In addition, we have discussed the challenging business environment with our Dealer Advisory Council. We will continue to be transparent with all of our loyal Blue Bird customers and remain committed to building best-in-class school buses.”
