Spirit of Mobility

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

Overview

Ford Chassis

Now available on the Ford E450 cutaway chassis, ARBOC’s low-floor Spirit of Mobility provides a single fully accessible 39” entranceway featuring a bi-fold ramp. The full air-ride suspension extends a kneeling feature, allowing for a 1:6 ramp slope and an entrance of less than 5” from the curb without deploying the ramp.The spacious interior presents easy maneuverability and theater seating that provides premium viewing for all riders. The 21-passenger and 6-wheelchair capacity makes the Spirit of Mobility an excellent option for demand-response service or fixed routes that have no need for a heavy-duty bus.
