The Type C school bus is commonly known as a “conventional” school bus. The body is installed on a flat-back cowl chassis with a gross vehicle weight rating of more than 10,000 pounds, designed for carrying more than 10 passengers. All of the engine is in front of the windshield and the entrance door is behind the front wheels. Type C’s are the traditional school buses and have become synonymous with the U. S public education system. Increasingly, these buses are also equipped with wheelchair lifts to accommodate students with disabilities.
