Features

Advanced Lightweight,
Durable Design

Lowest Step-In Height in the Industry

Light-Weight Foldout Ramp

Best-in-Class Gas Mileage

Front-wheel drive offers the security of better traction in inclement weather and a better turning radius than a comparably sized rear wheel drive mini-bus.

Smart air-suspension, standard on every Frontrunner, communicates with the vehicle’s on-board body computer to self-level, even lowering the vehicle’s nose at highway speeds for improved aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.With room for 6 passengers and 3 wheelchairs, 8 passengers and 2 wheelchairs, or 11 ambulatory (plus a driver), the Frontrunner does not require a commercial driver’s license (CDL).

Lightweight patented composite bus structure offers quiet rattle free riding comfort and superior corrosion resistance for long life.

Low step-in height in the kneeling position of 9.75” bests the competition by almost 20%. Flat floor offers wheelchair occupants the comfort, security, and convenience unavailable in a typical theater seating design.

Light-weight fold-out ramp exceeds the proposed ADA 1:6 standard and offers what no other traditional wheelchair lift canspace savings & reliability.

European inspired design challenges the typical American bus look offering exceptional passenger visibility, attractive appearance, low maintenance costs, and improved fuel efficiency.

Technology

Breathtaking Design. Innovative Cutting Edge Technology

The FrontRunner® is the most technologically advanced lowered floor mini-bus available today.

It’s lightweight high strength purpose-built lowered floor steel chassis and fully composite bus structure set a new standard for durability at the FTA’s 5-year / 150,000 mile test where the FrontRunner achieved an unprecedented score of 91%. This accomplishment validates the design goal that a lightweight, fuel efficient vehicle with a superior customer rider experience is more durable than heavier, dated steel cage body on chassis designs.

FrontRunner’s one step to a truly flat floor and simple fold-out ramp make boarding and exiting simple, safe, reliable and much quicker for all.
