I'd say without measuring, about 22 feet...I can measure in the AM if you would like a more exact number...

78" is about as tall as you will find in any school bus. If you need more headroom you will need to look at a transit coach. Transit coaches, particularly the low floor models, have the most headroom of any bus on the road today.

Gillig and El Dorado made some transit buses that were 30' which would give you at least 20' of usable space behind the driver. 30 ft El Dorado (1999) with 4 in stock - Used Buses for Sale at Transit Sales International

Be aware that the high headroom is only found between the front of the bus and the rear axle. From the rear axle back the floor is level with the tops of the fender wells. The fuel tank had to go somewhere.

I know you said 30' was your limit but here is a pretty nice one that is 35' and it has your 78" headroom. https://bellingham.craigslist.org/rv...404460661.html

Here is one that has a lot of what you will need to do already done to convert from bus use: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?f...=3&acctid=8746

Thanks, 21'-22' is what my guess/estimate was. Do you have kitchen, toilet & shower by chance in it? Trying to figure out how much we can fit.

This thread is amazing. The Blue Bird Vantage link is gold. Can someone confirm for me - am I reading this right? Is this bus 30'4" long bumper to bumper? Unit Dashboard | Portal

Question Longest school bus?

Has there ever been a 45 foot long and 9-10 foot wide double rear axle school bus?

Some of the Crowns were tandem axle. I'm not sure how long they were. The widest buses are coaches and I think they are around 102 inches wide.

No, school buses were limited to the 8'x 40' max. Coaches and transports have been known to be 45'.

Excellent. Thanks.
It will make the internet search so much easier. We do not have our bus yet, but are shopping.
We are going to have to tow a Jeep behind the bus and don't want a huge bus but need some room inside. The floorplan I came up with we need at least 13-14 feet.
Thanks
Leslie
I'm also about to get my first bus I would be interested in seeing your floor plan if that would be okay with you!

A rough guess would be between 26' and 30'.


All full size school buses are 96" wide.

Number of windows (6) X 27.5" + 10' for a CE (+6' for an RE or FE) = 23.75'.

My formula is for the overall length of a bus.

Dimensions of inside

would really like to know the dimensions of the inside. So I can start planning what I'll have where. I want to have a plan before I buy the bus.

Your interior will be 7'6" wide and about 14' from the back to the edge of the stairwell / back of the driver's seat.
