Lion Bus is recalling one model year 2013 360 school bus equipped with passenger seats that have three-point seat belts. In an impact, the backs of these seats absorb an insufficient amount of impact force. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection."


Noncompliant seats may increase the risk of injury to occupant during a crash.


The owner of the bus has been notified of the safety issue. Owners may contact Lion Bus at 1-450-432-5466.


Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 'TTY 1-800-424-9153', or go to
