Overview

Ford Transit

Built on the fuel-efficient Ford Transit chassis, the Spirit of Independence (”Independence”) offers a low cost of ownership while maintaining the safety and dependability that is expected from ARBOC. The 96” wide body allows for easy maneuverability inside the vehicle for both ambulatory and wheelchair passengers. With an available passenger capacity of up to 15 ambulatory or five wheelchairs, the Independence is perfect for use as a shuttle, in non-emergency medical transport, for assisted living facilities, or in public transit. Occupants will appreciate the superior headroom, as well as the visibility offered by the large passenger windows.
