ABC Companies announced it has entered the transit vehicle distributor market, and it will exhibit as a transit vehicle distributor at the upcoming APTA Expo, showcasing a range of vehicles and technologies designed to address emerging market trends and needs.
ABC said it made the decision to sell transit vehicles based on a need for more customized solutions to address the transit landscape.
Its new line-up of custom-created vehicles will give transit agencies greater choice, scalability, and flexibility, paired with the guidance needed to spec and purchase vehicles that meet their challenges, goals, and budgets.
“Transit agencies are challenged to do more with less, address emerging demand for more flexible options, and green their fleets—all while enhancing the rider experience,” noted ABC Companies president and CCO, Roman Cornell. “ABC is here to help. We’ve entered the transit vehicle distributor market with transformative new offers and products that meet these evolving needs and empower agencies to successfully navigate these complexities, while providing the same level of transparency and personalized service they’ve come to expect from us. With ABC as their distributor, agencies will reimagine transit, challenge assumptions and be more agile.”
ABC has developed partnerships with industry leaders, including Vicinity Motor Corp., Optimal EV, Proterra, New England Wheels, Turtle Top and more.
ABC will showcase vehicles and technologies at APTA booth number 1901, as well as at the Vicinity show booth number 1701. The vehicles on display were chosen because they represent ABC’s ability to address emerging trends, from smaller models and cut-aways that help meet the growing need for more hyper-local and micro-transit options, to low-floor and modified body chassis that combine ADA compliance and enhanced rider experience with transit-on-demand flexibility, to EV models that are greener and less expensive to operate.
“From intracity to cross-country, from diesel to electric, ABC’s versatile new lineup of transit vehicles delivers the right solutions—the right sizes, the right technology, the right power levels, the right price—and we always do right by you, giving you the comfort and confidence you need to achieve your goals,” said Cornell. “We’re not just entering the distributor market quietly; we’re entering with equity, history and new solutions that challenge assumptions and drive progress. ABC’s suite of transit solutions are more than just buses, vans or engines; they are truly vehicles of change.”
