Ride in Style, Comfort
The Transportation Division is pleased to announce that it has acquired two new ADA low-floor buses.
The Ram Promaster 3500 buses sit 48 inches shorter, are 15 inches narrower and cost an estimated $35,000 less than the 18- to 22-passenger buses that are used on some routes. In addition, the Promaster gets 19 miles per gallon (MPG) in the city, compared to 10 MPG (city) for the current 18- to 22-passenger buses. Staff estimates that this increased fuel efficiency will generate $6,000 to $7,000 in annual fuel savings, or $42,000 to $49,000 for the seven-year life of each vehicle.
