Lisle, IL – April 20, 2020 – In response to the impact of COVID-19, IC Bus today launched IC Bus Cares. The new program offers customers the option to defer payments for six months and offers IC Bus® 360 – the company’s all inclusive, one-stop service communication and remote diagnostics platform – free until October 1.  


“Despite the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, our customers have not stopped,” said Trish Reed, vice president and general manager, IC Bus. “Many of them are out doing good each day delivering meals to kids in need, using their buses as Wi-Fi hotspots for students to access online learning and picking up course work and dropping it off at student’s homes. These actions speak volumes about the community that we have in the school bus industry, and through this program we hope to provide support and say thank you to our customers.”
