MST

MST

The MST is a favorite of tour and shuttle operators because it combines the dependability of large tour buses with the operating economy and efficiency of smaller models. Large tour style passenger windows make the MST the ideal sightseeing coach. The MST is a front engine, medium duty, mid-size bus, available in 24', 26', 28', 30' and 32' lengths. Seated capacities range from 21 to 35 passengers.

Lowered floor (high capacity) rear luggage compartment, conventional rear luggage, TV-DVD systems and individual overhead storage compartment with passenger reading lights are but a few of the hundreds of the offered options. MST...large coach amenities, small bus size and price!
