At Thomas Built Buses, passenger safety is our number one priority. Every bus we manufacture meets or exceeds all Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards for school buses. Designed into the Minotour are a number of innovative safety features, including:

Meets or exceeds FMVSS/CMVSS
Built like a full-size school bus
Safety cage body construction with one-piece skirt-to-skirt roof bows
Two internal roof crash rails for rollover protection
Daytime running lights
Four-wheel anti-lock brakes
42″ x 47″ glass-paneled rear emergency door

The Minotour is so strong and durable that we parked our 18,000-pound Type D bus on its roof-without extra reinforcement. Its steel cage construction and one-piece, skirt-to-skirt steel rafter held up so well that all its windows and doors still opened easily without binding.
