“ Grande West has set itself apart from others with the Vicinity bus – a heavy duty mid-size, true community transit bus now in operation in many municipalities across The United States and Canada.”
Available in 27.5, 30 and 35 Foot Models
The Vicinity was born from a need expressed by transit systems looking for a durable, reliable, customer oriented mid-size vehicle at a reasonable price point. Grande West responded by designing a vehicle with affordability, accessibility and global responsibility in mind. The Vicinity costs significantly less than a 40′ bus and is considerably more durable than cut-away buses which are based on a truck chassis.
The Vicinity bus is available in 27.5, 30 and 35 foot models powered by clean diesel or CNG designed. The Vicinity is a heavy duty 12 year bus that costs significantly less than a regular 40 foot transit bus, burns less fuel, and emits less harmful emissions.
Alliance Bus Group, the exclusive US distributor, worked with Grande West to produce FTA Buy America compliant Vicinity Buses in Atlanta, Georgia. The Vicinity was designed to meet the tough operating environment of North America, and was tested and ranked “Best in Class” in the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Bus Test Program at Altoona, Pennsylvania.
