Les Enterprises Michel Corbeil is a former school and commercial bus manufacturer, based out of St-Lin-Laurentides, Canada.

Corbeil buses were known for utilizing light weight components, allowing for many flexible floorplans. Being built in Canada, Corbeil made a bus that was resistant to winter conditions, which made it a popular bus not only in Canada, but in the Northeast United States, particularly New York.

Corbeil's largest dealers outside of Canada were Don Brown Bus Sales of Johnstown, NY and Gorman Enterprises of Elma, NY. New York State made up the majority of Corbeil's overall sales.

In addition to Type A buses, Corbeil built Type C (conventional) and Type D (transit-style) buses mostly on International chassis, but also some Freightliner FS-65 chassis. These were only sold in Canada, as Corbeil did not want to enter the highly competitive US market. Additionally, International supplied Type C and D chassis, but Corbeil was not allowed to sell their Type D buses in the United States because they would compete against similar products built by International's subsidiary, AmTran.

In September 2007, after a few years of declining business, Corbeil shut down operations, and Collins Bus purchased assets, including designs, naming rights, and warranty.

Products

  • Type A Buses on Ford, Chevrolet, and GMC chassis (single and dual rear wheels)
  • Type C Buses on International 3800 and Freightliner FS-65 chassis (before 2003)
  • Type D Buses on International 3900 FE and 3000 RE chassis (before 2000)
