Transit Buses in the US - Procurement Research Report

Transit Buses Procurement in the US

This report is intended to assist buyers of transit buses, which are purchased and operated primarily by public transit agencies charged with providing public transportation for a city or region. Transit buses are distinguished from coach buses in that they are designed for shorter-distance travel and thus feature a mixture of bucket and bench seating, standing room capacity, multiple large doors for entering and exiting and minimal luggage space. Transit buses are typically classified as Class 7 vehicles and can carry up to 57 seated passengers. Suppliers are primarily manufacturers, with dealers playing a small role selling new and used buses to private companies and small municipalities. This report does not include coach buses, school buses, minibuses or shuttles.
