E-Z Ridder II

E-Z Ridder II

Different transportation applications require different solutions.  The E-Z Rider II, with the flexibility of available front and/or center doors and ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps, offers passenger boarding flexibility available on no other low-floor bus.  Does the route require clean fuel technology?  The answer is E-Z.  The E-Z Rider II is available with transit-tested diesel, liquefied (LNG) and compressed (CNG) natural gas fuel systems as well as the latest hybrid electric propulsion systems.  Is passenger capacity important?  The E-Z Rider II can accommodate up to 41 seated passengers on a 35 foot bus.  No other low-floor bus even comes close!

Tired of trying to run a lightweight bus in a heavyweight duty-cycle?  With heavy-duty Arvin Meritor axles, large S-cam air brakes, and a transit-proven and crash-tested, monocoque safety cage, the E-Z Rider II is designed and built to take real-world punishment year after year.  Designed and manufactured in the United States, the E-Z Rider II is the low-floor solution.
