By The Associated Press

MACON, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 16, 2022--

Blue Bird Corporation (Nasdaq: BLBD), the leader in electric and low-emission school buses, has implemented a price increase on all model school buses to offset record inflationary pressures and substantially higher costs for raw materials, transportation, and labor. The Company also continues to face supply chain disruptions exacerbated by Russia’s war in Ukraine and the lingering COVID-19 pandemic. Blue Bird's 10% price increase took effect on May 10, 2022.

“We maintain a relentless focus on process improvement every day to optimize our cost structure, production throughput, and operations,” said Matthew Stevenson, president and CEO of Blue Bird Corporation. “Despite the significant progress we have made so far, we are now forced to pass on these unprecedented cost increases to the market. It is a necessary step to continue supplying best-in-class school buses, parts and related services to our valued customers in the student transportation industry.”
