The deliveries have been made to Sonoma County Transit (ten), Visalia Transit (seven), Union City Transit (six) and the City of Turlock (two).
The Orion VII CNG buses are a low floor design that optimizes safety and comfort, while also providing efficiency. The frame is specially designed with a true heavy-duty construction, designed specifically for the extra weight of the CNG fuel tanks. These models also share the same modern, European design as the traditional diesel model.
