Vehicle Description

Diamond Coach VIP 2200

The VIP 2200 is an ideal solution for an activity, tour, or paratransit bus.

The VIP 2200 can accommodate up to 21 passengers and can be equipped with many of the luxury options of larger “coach” busses. All models can be optioned with a wheelchair lift to meet ADA requirements.

What makes Diamond uniquely different? Our buses are impact resistant.

Try this experiment. Obtain a cross section piece of a Diamond bus and one from a metal competitor. Place each cross section on the ground. Next, hit both pieces with the same amount of force using a mallet. Which piece does the dent appear?
