HarpursvilleDEPOSIT, N.Y. — Leonard Bus Sales announced that they have begun delivering some of the first IC Bus AE Series Type-A school buses to school districts across New York, with Harpursville Central Schools being among one of the first to receive the new cutting-edge AE Series school bus.

"We could not be happier that our customers are among the first in the country to put these new IC Bus™ AE Series Type-A school buses to work," said Leonard Bus Sales President Mike Leonard. "Our customers have been looking forward to getting these buses into service and taking advantage of the versatility and reliability that comes from the industry's first fully integrated Type-A school bus."

The fully integrated AE Series by IC Bus offers a longer life-cycle, which is good news for school districts looking to stretch every dollar. The AE Series is extremely versatile with a seating capacity of between 14 and 36 passengers, allowing school districts to service special needs children and get maximum use out of its chassis. The Maxxforce® 7 engine supplies 220 hp to the AE Series and is covered by an easy-tilt hood. The AE Series comes standard with features like "leave no student behind post-trip inspection system" and soft-ride parabolic suspension.

"Like all our products, Leonard Bus Sales will provide experienced and professional staff to train school districts on the unique qualities of the fully integrated AE Series by IC Bus," Leonard continued. "Customers that purchase the fully integrated AE Series will get unparalleled customer support from our team and IC Bus™ at every stage of the vehicle's life cycle."
