What Are the Dimensions of a School Bus?

A school bus would typically be about 9.5 to 11 feet high and around 8 feet wide. The length of a school bus can range from about 12 feet to 40 feet.

School buses come in different sizes. Small buses for just a handful of children have enough room for only 15 children, while larger buses can hold up to 90 students. School buses are usually yellow in color. This is because when looking from the corner of the eyes, people can see yellow sooner than other colors. With this, even during bad weather, other drivers would still be able to see school buses fairly well.
