So I've been searching all over the internet.. with no luck.. I'm trying to figure out about how much space you have in the rear of most 30+ feet schools buses there is before you have to deal with the wheel well? My guess is around 8ft?

I too am in the market for a bus (once funds are available) and I am sketching out possible floor plans. I know I'm going to have to work around the wheel wells but I can't figure out where they are INSIDE the bus!

Any info would be appreciated

Most are 8' on the outside and work out to about 7-1/2' on the inside. Height and width of the wheel wells will vary by model & maker.

Yup 7, 6" on the inside, 7, 10" outside on most.

Newer buses like the lions are a bit smaller.

Nothing is exact in the school bus world. Windows have different sizes. That pic is pretty small.

I'm shopping for a bus. It can't be longer than 30 feet. I'm looking at a 2000 International, conventional, 54 passenger bus. The bus in question is listed by First Student, and there isn't a picture. Anyone know how long it is tip to tail?
