Micro Bird Commercial debuts new vehicles

Posted on September 2, 2015 by METRO Staff

Micro Bird Commercial is set to debut its new CT-Series vehicle for up to 17 passengers as well as its new D-Series vehicle, featuring a 25-passenger capacity plus luggage space, this September 28 to 30 at BusCon 2015 in Indianapolis.

The CT-Series, offered in gas or diesel engines, provides up to 38% improved fuel economy (Independent test vs. GM gas and current diesel models). As well as a significant fuel economy, the transit model offers new in-cab capless fuel filler and an improved engine compartment layout in both 3.2 liter and 3.7 liter engines.

“The engine is compact, so there is more room for mechanics to maneuver,” said Micro Bird Commercial’s National Sales Manager James Mansell.

In addition to many of the Micro Bird body benefits, the CT chassis offers a new ergonomic design with more visibility and a more comfortable driver’s area, with easy-to-access controls. The new “more-view” window and entrance door feature offers improved sightlines for drivers and passengers entering and exiting the vehicle. Additionally, the new design offers improved driver storage space and a quieter ride, explained Mansell.

“People that know our history know that we focus on quality, longevity and cost of ownership,” said Normand Paquet, VP, sales & marketing.

The CT-Series and D-Series (pictured) vehicles continue advances for company, which launched its commercial product line, redesigned image and website www.mbcbus.com last fall.

Micro Bird (Booth #939) will also be exhibiting its new D-Series vehicle with room for up to 25 passengers and luggage. A 28-passenger capacity version is also newly available.
The diesel-powered unit  is a dual rear-wheel bus made of six longitudinal structural beams combined with one-piece galvanized steel roof bows that enhance safety and rollover protection.

Both the CT and D Series buses are purpose-built for tours, assisted living, public transit, shuttle markets and many additional applications.
