New Bus Owner from Iowa!

Picked up a used bus from the school about a mile from me. Didn't really know what I was getting myself into. This site is helping a ton!
Many adventures to come!

The mid-sized buses are not that common, but a nice size. Probably has the AT545 tranny which should be okay given the landscape out there. Welcome!

I couldn't find anything that specifically said what the transmission is. When it stops raining one of these days I plan on looking at the engine and underneath to see if I can find something specific.

The school that I bought it from had a guy working the bus barn and he thought it was an Allison 2000. I'm hoping that's the case.
