On May 11, 2018 FTS hosted The 2018 Blue Bird Experience Ride & Drive Event at Marchant Field in Lakeland, Florida. The Experience gave attendees the chance to gain key knowledge to advance their school district's potential and to find new ways to increase safety and put more money back into the classrooms.
The event included in-person demos, ride and drives, exhibits, vendor showcase and technology orientation sessions. With vendors like Bendix, Cummins, Roush, Blue Bird and more there was plenty of new technologies to view.
During this event Blue Bird debuted the new Electric School Bus along with a Propane, Gas, CNG and Diesel school bus. Also included in this event was the Bendix Stability Control demonstration (see video below).
