The Freightliner C2 is a Type C conventional bus chassis manufactured by Daimler Trucks North America, used for school bus applications. It was introduced in 2004 as the replacement for the FS-65. The C2 uses the hood, firewall, steering column, and dashboard of the Freightliner Business Class M2 medium-duty conventional.
As a bus chassis, the C2 is only used by Thomas Built Buses as the basis for the Thomas Saf-T-Liner C2. As Thomas is a subsidiary of Freightliner, there are no plans by other body manufacturers to utilize the C2 chassis. However, the standard Freightliner M2 chassis is available to the commercial and shuttle bus industry as a cutaway cab.
