We went to drivers, fleet supervisors, school administrators and mechanics and asked them what they wanted in a school bus. But we didn't stop there. We went out and videotaped hours and hours of footage of drivers performing their jobs. We studied repetitive movements. Looked at how they use the controls and in what sequence.
We didn't stop there either. We took exact measurements of 1,500 drivers of all sizes and shapes. As a result, the CE interior environment is an ergonomic marvel for drivers.
With the CE, it's the little things that make the difference. Like making sure the windshield wiper pattern provides a clear, wiped view of side-view mirrors. Placing pedals, switches and controls where they make the most sense for the most drivers. And offering a roped-in flat windshield that is faster and less costly to repair than the curved and bonded variety.
Nothing revolutionary – just practical, commonsense features that make the CE a better bus to own, drive and maintain. It's amazing what happens when you listen to customers and think about buses from their point of view.
