Grande West Transportation Group Inc., a Canadian bus manufacturer of heavy-duty mid-sized transit buses for sale in Canada and the U.S., announced it received its first U.S. order for its Vicinity bus from the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA).

Grande West's exclusive U.S. distributor Alliance Bus Group will deliver 10 Vicinity buses to MARTA for operation in their transit system.

"We are committed to creating more efficient transportation options for our customers. That means building a more highly layered, customized service model," said MARTA GM/CEO Keith Parker. ''These new Vicinity vehicles allow our bus operators to travel safely into neighborhoods where our standard fleet could not easily navigate while offering more space than our current Mobility bus options."

"Providing Vicinity to a U.S. transit authority is another major milestone for Grande West as it demonstrates the broad North American appeal of our game changing mid-size bus,” said William Trainer, CEO of Grande West. “We are very pleased to be providing Vicinity to MARTA, a very well recognized and admired transit authority."
