Something interesting. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .the EMERGENCY EXIT/DOOR sign font on Thomas Built Buses is similar to the font and style "Impact Bold/Italics".

 

Stuff to know about this page

“R’s” in the bus year on this list mean they might be retired buses.

Most Buses with “R” numbers have Air Foils and under floor luggage storage, but they have a Retarder (That's what R stands for).

Buses with “W” numbers have wheelchair lifts.

All school buses in Clark County have 2 stop signs, and 4 red & 4 yellow top flashing lights.

Most buses now in Clark County are made by Thomas Built Buses.
