Gel-coated exterior maintains it’s new look for the life of the vehicle and absorbs temperature at a much lower rate than metal, making the bus easier to heat and cool.
Steel-reinforced composite body has twice the strength-to-weight ratio of an all steel frame structure.
Tinted Top-T windows reduce heat, glare and UV rays. Vent panels at the top allow maximum ventilation and discourage passengers from placing hands or arms outside the vehicle.

Safety is our first priority. We build every bus to meet all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Good as those standards are, though, we know we can do better; so, we set new standards in safety.
