Transmark RE

Transmark RE

After extensive conversations with our customers and exhausting engineering, the Transmark RE emerged - the mid-size bus of choice for transit and shuttle operators nationwide.  The rugged Transmark RE can be built on a wheelbase as short as 139 inches with a body width of only 96 inches for flexibility and maneuverability other buses just cannot match.

Wide doors with a two-step entry allow easy on-and-off, and both doors can accommodate ADA compliant in-step lifts.  The Transmark RE also offers the widest array of available engines and fuel types.  The Transmark RE has been successfully FTA-Altoona tested for the 10 year/350,000 mile test.  Transmark, the hands-down choice for city, airport, and campus shuttle operations.
