Kansas U. initiates service with 5 Optima buses

Posted on May 10, 2006

The University of Kansas will take delivery of five under-35-foot Opus low-floor buses to service its new park-and-ride service opening in the fall. The buses, manufactured by Optima Bus Corp., were acquired through a cooperative agreement with the City of Lawrence and $1 million in Federal Transit Administration capital funding provided through the Kansas Department of Transportation. Vehicles feature the Wright Aluminique™ modular bolted aluminum system, which combines structural strength with low overall weight. Because of the Opus' lighter overall weight, it offers better fuel economy and less pollution, noise and wear and tear on streets.
