MetroBus Unveils New Bus
MetroBus has added a new and smaller bus to their fleet.
The Vicinity Bus is 10 feet shorter than a standard transit bus.
The Vicinity Bus is one of the quietest on the market. The "close and seal" door design reduces noise on board and reduces air draft preserving heat within the bus during the colder months and keeps the cool air in during the summer months.
The smaller, lighter design also improves fuel economy, averaging as low as 38 litres per 100 kms, resulting in close to 30% fuel savings.
Their new Vicinity Buses feature a customer-oriented low-floor design and are equipped with a boarding ramp making them fully wheelchair accessible. The bus can also be "kneeled" to the curb making the low-floor entry even lower.
