Coachmen Industries wins paratransit bus agreement

Posted on March 26, 2008

Indiana-based Coachmen Industries Inc. has entered into an agreement to produce ADA-compliant, low floor accessible buses for ARBOC Mobility LLC., a marketer of specialized transit and shuttle buses designed for users with mobility challenges.  


The buses will incorporate patent pending technologies provided by ARBOC Mobility, and will be specially designed with a low-floor, "kneeling" air suspension chassis and ramp system. These features allow easy access for all passengers, including those in wheelchairs, to enter and exit through the same entrance without the need for a complex lift system. 


The buses will be produced in four different lengths in both gasoline and diesel power trains, accommodating 12 to 25 passengers. The first unit is scheduled off the dedicated assembly line by late March 2008, and sales are expected to begin in the second quarter.
