The Gillig Transit Coach School Bus is a series of buses that were produced by the American bus manufacturer Gillig. Produced from 1940 to 1982, the Transit Coach was produced in multiple applications; most examples were yellow school buses, with other versions produced as motorcoaches and other commercial-use vehicles. The first mid-engine school bus, the Transit Coach was also one of the first examples produced with a diesel engine. As of current production, the tandem-axle version remains the highest-capacity (97 passengers) school bus ever produced.

  • The Gillig Transit Coach School Bus is a series of buses that were produced by the American bus manufacturer Gillig. Produced from 1940 to 1982, the Transit Coach was produced in multiple applications; most examples were yellow school buses, with other versions produced as motorcoaches and other commercial-use vehicles. The first mid-engine school bus, the Transit Coach was also one of the first examples produced with a diesel engine. As of current production, the tandem-axle version remains the highest-capacity (97 passengers) school bus ever produced. Over its 42-year production run, the Transit Coach was marketed primarily to operators on or near the West Coast of the United States (California, Washington State, or Oregon), competing nearly exclusively against the similar Crown Supercoach. Following the acquisition of the rights to the Kenworth "Pacific" bus product line, elements of its design were integrated into the Transit Coach, with the model line undergoing only minor evolutionary changes into the 1980s. After 1982 production, the Transit Coach was discontinued by Gillig as the company concentrated its resources on the Gillig Phantom transit bus. From 1986 to 1993, a variant of the Phantom was offered for school bus usage, with the model line manufactured through 2008. Throughout its production, Gillig assembled the Transit Coach in Hayward, California; currently, the company solely produces transit buses.
