Spirit of Freedom

The ARBOC Spirit of Freedom provides a single, non-discriminatory patented angled and accessible entranceway.

Overview

Ford Chassis

ARBOC’s fully accessible Spirit of Freedom is now available on the desirable Ford E450 cutaway chassis. The low-floor with spring suspension provides a single 39” entranceway featuring a bi-fold ramp with a gentle slope that is easy to ascend independently, even for those using mobility devices. The interior offers ample space for wheelchair maneuverability and the theater seating provides premium viewing for all riders. The passenger capacity of 21 seated and 6 wheelchairs makes the Spirit of Freedom an excellent option for demand-response service or fixed routes that have no need for a large heavy-duty bus.
