Freedman Seating Company recently completed a 10-month tour of the U.S., promoting the latest in transit seating for the small and mid-size bus markets. Combining product and safety education with promotional opportunities, the “Show On The GO" was Freedman’s third tour in three years, following the successful “Rock N Rose Tour” (2016) and “Transit USA Tour” (2017).

The #ShowOnTheGO tour, featuring Freedman seats and other products made in America, kicked off in early February making its way to bus dealers, operators, manufacturers, and trade shows spanning 40-plus states. Freedman Seating sales managers added 45,000 miles to a 2017 Ford Transit 350. A total of 100,000 miles have been toured by the FSC crew since 2016.

In addition to visiting more than seventy dealers, operators, OEMs, and government agencies, the tour made stops at several industry events, including SWTA Freedom Through Transit Annual Conference, APTA Bus & Paratransit Conference, and more.

The van was fitted with a rotation of eight to 10 passenger/driver seats; featured three-point seats; and included the 3PT Seat, GO Seat, GO-ES, and Esquire. Other products and features included the Trieste, Palermo, and Venezia seats with new coach-style armrests by FMS Seating (also with three-point seat belts), G2ELP Driver Seat feat.
