The Starcraft Bus Guardian is a type-C school bus built on a Hino Trucks 338 chassis. The body used a welded galvanized steel cage design with fibreglass endcaps, galvanized steel side panels, and steel roof. An option for a fibreglass roof was available.

Between 2008 and 2009 Starcraft negotiated with Hino to supply the chassis.[1] The prototype vehicle was unveiled in October 2010, with production and sales scheduled to start in early 2011.[2] However, the bus never reached production.
