NABI showcases 45-foot CompoBus at Alabama plant

Posted on December 5, 2003

North American Bus Industries (NABI) unveiled a prototype of its 45-foot CompoBus at its plant in Anniston, Ala., on Monday. In attendance were U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby and U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, as well as Roger Snoble, CEO of the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The body of the CompoBus is constructed with a lightweight composite material that is rust- and corrosion-resistant. Its 45-foot length increases passenger capacity without adding to operating costs, according to NABI officials. The MTA has ordered 100 of the heavy-duty buses for its bus rapid transit (BRT) program. Those vehicles will be powered by CNG. Meanwhile, NABI is nearing completion of delivery of 56 units to the city of Phoenix for its BRT program. Because the application in Phoenix involves more interurban and suburban express service than MTA's, the buses have more amenities, including a plush interior, reading lights and padded, high-back seats.
