Spirit of Mobility
The Spirit of Mobility is the first truly affordable low floor bus. It is built on a Chevrolet cutaway chassis without any modification to the drive train. The manual or optional power ramp allows for easy loading and unloading through the 39” clear door opening. The interior offers theater seating for better viewing for all riders. This low-floor bus includes a full air-ride suspension with a standard kneeling feature that provides an exceptionally smooth ride.
A hybrid-electric drive system is available with both gas and diesel engines.
