Blue Bird Vision Diesel
An icon in school transportation, the Blue Bird Vision Diesel bus comes with our unwavering commitment to passenger safety, durability, service and support. Our dedicated team of field service engineers focuses exclusively on school bus operations.
The Vision Diesel bus features:
- Exceptional driver-forward visibility
- Unique mirror systems - improving driver awareness and increasing child safety
- 90% cleaner emissions than in 2006
- uUltra-low sulfur fuel usage
Adding to health protection for students and improved air quality in communities, the Vision Diesel includes proven selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology.
In the SCR system, nitrous oxide gas is injected with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which reacts with the catalyst. That reaction breaks the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions down into harmless nitrogen and water vapor. These components are a pure and natural part of the air we breathe. The nitrogen and water vapor then pass harmlessly through the tailpipe.
