Vehicle Description

Spirit of Freedom

The ARBOC Spirit of Freedom provides a single, non-discriminatory patented angled and accessible entranceway. Passengers of all mobility capabilities, including wheelchair riders and even those using walkers, can experience what Equal Access for Everyone� truly means! The innovative Spirit of Freedom is the only bus of its kind, offering all the benefits of a low floor bus at a competitive price and making superior accessibility available to everyone! Built on the conventional GM G4500 chassis, the Spirit of Freedom rides on the OEM spring suspension while exceeding ADA guidelines with a 1:5 ramp slope. If speed of operation, passenger dignity and safety are important, then the Spirit of Freedom is the bus for you!
