Small engine. Big power.

We wanted to build a bus that could move 52 passengers in the most cost-efficient way possible. So we built it around the Cummins L9 wet-sleeve diesel engine, a legendary engine known for outstanding performance, efficiency and durability. It produces more power than larger, heavier engines.

So if you need a bus that moves more people more efficiently, we've got you covered. And the Cummins L9 saves you time, too. Its even-cooling wet-sleeve design and durability let it work harder and longer between maintenance. The Cummins L9 is the ideal match for the RE Series, with its sturdy steel cage construction, one-piece roof bows, solid steel flooring and 16-gauge steel exterior panels. The RE Series is full of comfortable features for passengers and driver: Radio AM/FM with CD player, available Wi-Fi and Satellite TV, slip-proof floor, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, and ambient temperature controls and directional display – plus a long list of optional equipment.

The RE Series is designed for maximum convenience in maintenance and servicing. Daily inspections are made easy from the rear of the bus with the side-mounted radiator and rear-facing fluid checkpoints. Two engine access doors provide side and rear engine access. A simplified flasher panel allows easy inspection and servicing. The instruments are fully electronic and self-testing, with visual and audible alarms. And even the battery box slides out on nylon rollers. As with every bus we make, IC Bus has you covered throughout the entire ownership experience with our complete bus diagnostic checkup computer system, an expansive parts distribution system and an unmatched dealer network for 24/7 support.
