The City of Grapevine, Texas awarded ARBOC Specialty Vehicles LLC an order for two bustleback-style Spirit of Freedom buses. The order supplements three existing low-floor body-on-chassis ARBOC buses in Grapevine’s fleet. Each order was procured by Creative Bus Sales (CBS).
“Grapevine had a unique concept for these buses, and we are thrilled to again have the opportunity to provide the retro-style they are looking for,” said Don Roberts, president, ARBOC. “We are utilizing our Freedom model by adding exterior parts to the rear that create the bustleback, specifically for Grapevine. This unique design demonstrates the remarkable versatility of our products.”
The fully accessible low-floor Freedom vehicles provide single, non-discriminatory entrances and contain no steps throughout the buses. The Grapevine buses are unique not only because of the historic bustleback style, but also because they will serve as shuttles for travelers at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport who experience lengthy layovers. The shuttles allow travelers to experience historic Grapevine attractions, including shopping, wineries, and dining.
