Tom Duncan states, “Oklahoma State University is proud to partner with ARBOC and leverage their success to take our services to the next level. Their innovative design and floor plan will allow for ease of boarding and alighting of customers while allowing ample room for the variety of mobility devices we encounter on a daily basis. We are honored to be the recipient of ARBOC’s 2,000th bus and look forward to celebrating future milestones within their industry.”

Brent Roy from National Bus Sales states, “Being a part of this incredible milestone is very special for me since I have been selling and promoting the ARBOC product since it was first developed. This ARBOC bus has established a reputation for being one of the safest and well-built buses on the market today.”

Don Roberts, President & CEO of ARBOC Specialty Vehicles, states, “I am extremely proud to say that ARBOC has taken the small cutaway low-floor bus concept and grown it into a widely accepted transportation solution for transit operators all across North America today. It took us around 4 years to reach bus number 1,000 and then just a little over 2 years to reach bus number 2,000. This 2,000th bus milestone celebration was a great opportunity to recognize the hard work and dedication of all of the men and women who work at this company, many of which have been here since we started”.
