Senator SII

Introducing the new Senator SII from StarTrans. Our newest line of mid-sized buses has been designed with the needs of the customer, passenger, and driver in mind. This new line provides the outstanding value and the durability you have come to expect from StarTrans buses over the past twenty years.

Senator SII features a galvanized steel, baked white exterior along with a new front aerodynamic fiberglass profile. It also features a new stylish rear profile which utilizes lightweight thermoplastics. In keeping with the StarTrans tradition of excellence, the Senator SII utilizes a fully welded steel cage construction to help ensure the safety, overall strength, and durability of the bus.

Senator SII offers seating capacity up to 29 passengers on certain models.

It also features a spacious aisle, large luggage racks, and plenty of headroom for passenger safety and comfort. And these are just some of the features and benefits of the new Senator SII.

Underneath the Senator SII is the time-tested E-Series Ford chassis. This chassis selection provides the durability and serviceability needed to keep your new Senator SII performing at its best for years to come.

Engineering excellence and quality construction combined with rugged testing performed in Altoona, Pennsylvania ensure the structural integrity of the Senator SII. We back our buses with a five-year, 75,000-mile body structural warranty.
