Spirit of Mobility

Spirit of Mobility

The ARBOC Spirit of Mobility is built on a conventional GM cutaway with all the passengers entering through the same 39” wide door opening. The interior offers theatre seating that provides better viewing for all riders and a fully-integrated body-on-chassis with full E-Coat corrosion protection and bonded-steel structure.

The ARBOC Spirit of Mobility has a single angled and accessible entranceway that provides equal access to passengers of all abilities, including wheelchair riders and users of power scooters. No need to contend with steps.

The Spirit of Mobility low-floor bus offers a full air-ride suspension with a beneficial kneeling feature, allowing for a 1:6 ramp slope and an entrance of less than 5″ from the curb without deploying the ramp. If speed of operation, ride quality, passenger dignity and safety are important, then the Spirit of Mobility is the bus for you.
