The city of Falls Church, Va., took delivery of four SLF 200 buses for its new transit system George, named for the nation's founding father.
Operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), the new SLF 200s will transport passengers to and from WMATA's Metrorail stations located in the east and west corridors of Falls Church.
The buses, manufactured by Thomas Dennis Co., feature an exhaust gas re-circulation system, which reduces emissions, pollutants and nitrogen oxide levels that contribute to smog.
In addition, the SLF 200 features 42-inch-wide front and rear doors, and air-operated doors that open inward for increased clearance.
The full air ride suspension kneels as low as nine inches, and has a 36-inch ramp for paratransit applications.
