Creative Bus Sales (CBS) in Albuquerque initiated the sale of ARBOC Specialty Vehicle’s first Spirit of Independence model built on a Ford Transit chassis.

Kim Yoder, national sales manager of ARBOC in Middlebury, Ind., travelled to the Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M., for the unveiling of the new product.

CBS features a national sales, service, and customer support network. As the top ARBOC distributor in the nation, CBS was eager to sell the impressive new product.

“The Pueblo of Santa Ana knew exactly what they wanted. They wanted a Ford ADA-accessible small bus with a ramp and no lift. We were lucky that ARBOC had just created the exact vehicle that they wanted,” stated Gary Guinn of CBS. “We all jumped at the opportunity to be the first to order this amazing transit vehicle. I know that the Pueblo and I take pride in being the first to get this bus.”
