SAFETY FIRST

Getting your passengers from point A to point B, safely and on schedule. —that’s our job. It’s why we apply the highest standards to every product design. With new technology like electronic stability control and collision mitigation now standard on all IC Buses, our manufacturing process ensures we’re building the best buses on the road.

Made in the USA

Dedicated, highly-trained employees. Rigorous testing (the brakes alone undergo nine in-process validations). Complete construction under one roof. From our Tulsa, OK, manufacturing facility, we put nearly 11,000 new buses on the road each year.
