CCW upfits San Francisco buses with new ramps

Posted on January 5, 2016

Complete Coach Works (CCW) completed the installation of Lift-U Bi-Fold Ramps on 86 buses operated by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (SFMTA).

The work was done at the CCW North facility in Alameda, Calif., with CCW providing transportation of the buses from SF Muni to Alameda to begin their upfitting.

"We outfitted these buses with the latest and greatest technology that will allow for more consistent and safe loading and unloading of ADA passengers," said Kyle Carson of CCW.

The new ramps fold flush with the floor when not in use and have a substructure that can be adjusted when the ramp is deployed to create a smooth and level surface, allowing passengers who use wheelchairs or have difficulty climbing steps to easily and safely board or exit the bus.

Including the completion of this project, CCW has successfully rehabbed a large portion of San Francisco Municipal's fleet.
