Can someone help me with some measurements?

Hi all,
So, I'm not really converting a bus, I'm working on an exhibit ON a bus, but I was wondering if folks could give me some advice and also could do me a favor (or knew off-hand). The bus I'm working on is the standard school bus size (13 windows long, 75" high interior). I won't actually get the bus on Tuesday (long story) and I need to purchase a ramp for the back emergency exit so that people can get on the bus in the front and then exit out the back.

My questions are:
1. What is the height of the back exit from the ground to the bottom of the door? I need to figure out the slope so I can purchase an appropriate ramp or stairs.
2. Does anyone use a ramp for the back exit? If so, what kind?

I would be SO grateful to get this info ASAP as it will give me a jump start on getting everything done instead of waiting...

Thanks!
Karen

I will get you measurements from the ground to the back door for you. Not sure if my bus is the same as yours but we will see if this will help
