||THE SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO 15-PASSENGER CHILD CARE VANS
The Child Care Bus is the ideal choice for child/daycare transportation needs. The single wheel Child Care Bus can accommodate 14-20 passengers. This child care bus provides the low profile of a van with the safety of a school bus.
It should never take a tragedy to make people care, but all too often calling national attention to important safety issues takes just that. In 1994 six year old Jacob Strebler was killed when a truck driver ran a red light and crashed into a non-conforming child care van operated by a Private School in Columbia, South Carolina.
The media attention generated by the Strebler case, which included a special feature on NBC's Dateline, has resonated in the political arena as well. Senator John McCain - chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee - has publicly mounted a campaign to help retire non-conforming child care vans and we understand the needs of child care facilities and offer many options to help make your transition from non-conforming vans to our child care buses easier, safer and affordable.
Collins builds child care buses from the chassis up, engineering safety into every square millimeter. Available in single rear-wheel 9,600 lb. GVW, it features a reinforced, galvanized steel body, for bus-like protection in both head-on and side collisions. It also offers a smoother, sturdier ride, for added comfort and safety, to protect your precious passengers. *All Collins child care bus models may be configured as a school bus, Allowable Alternate Vehicle (AAV) or Activity Bus.
Child care buses are available with a gas or diesel engine.
