Chicago’s Pace Suburban Bus awarded ENC a contract for 44 additional 30-foot clean diesel Axess model heavy-duty transit buses.
Pace provides public transportation services to the Chicago suburbs encompassing 284 municipalities and a service area of 3,677 square miles: nearly 15 times the size of the city of Chicago. Pace’s innovative approach to public transportation gives the agency a national reputation as an industry leader.
“ENC has a long partnership with Pace,” said Mike Ammann, VP, sales, ElDorado National. “ENC has delivered nearly 700 heavy-duty low-floor buses to Pace over the past fifteen years. The latest Pace order is part of a contract for up to 164 30’ fully accessible low-floor ENC buses.”
In Pace’s ongoing effort to modernize its fleet to benefit customers and reduce maintenance costs, the Axess 30-foot low-floor buses feature a 100% 304 grade stainless steel body structure and advanced composite exterior bodywork, creating a truly corrosion free transit bus. This is a key advancement in transit bus design and rust-free material integration. The 30-foot design is ideal for navigating neighborhoods and downtown areas where a conventional 40-foot bus cannot fit or is not desired.
