Safety

You may have noticed that the C2 looks different than other Type C buses. We chose this design, quite simply, because of the outstanding visibility and safety. The windshield provides a panoramic view and when combined with the low sloping hood, low instrument panel and A-pillar windows, the C2's visibility footprint is the largest in the type C category. Plus, it offers a number of other features that enhance safety, including:

Safety
  • Saf-T-Net construction
    • Side skirt reinforcement
    • Extended roof bows
    • Welded header and rafter system
  • Double-bolted body mounting clips
  • Fuel tank mounted between frame rails
  • One-piece bonded windshield
  • Saf-T-Bond adhesive joints
  • Meets or exceeds FMVSS
Driver Visibility
  • 25% improved visibility over typical Type C bus
  • Saf-T-Vue passenger loading window
  • Low profile aerodynamic hood
  • Low instrument panel
  • Overlapping windshield wipers
