In 2009, ARBOC Specialty Vehicles LLC presented their first shipment of the renowned Spirit of Mobility model to Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART). Subsequently, ARBOC and DART have developed a formidable partnership that has been a valuable part of ARBOC’s ongoing success. Together they are now celebrating the delivery of ARBOC’s 2,500th low-floor bus, merely eight years after its first production.

The 2,500th bus manufactured by ARBOC is part of a 123 bus contract that was awarded to ARBOC in February of this year. Various obstacles the ARBOC team overcame to reach this landmark are testaments of their dedication to providing a bus that far-surpasses the quality of others in the industry.

“I am proud to celebrate yet another milestone with the devoted employees at ARBOC. We have very ambitious growth targets and have successfully achieved many of these, not with a particular product but as a result of the strong foundation our employees have shaped for the company,” said Don Roberts ARBOC’s president/CEO.

Another key contributor to the ARBOC/DART partnership is Creative Bus Sales who administers the contract and provides all sales, service, and parts support directly to DART. “We are excited to be a part of this important milestone for ARBOC, DART, and the specialty vehicle industry,” said Ryan Frost, GM, south region, for Creative Bus Sales. “We value this unique partnership and look forward to serving other like-minded transit authorities with quality products like ARBOC for passengers of all abilities.”
