New Buses Join the ART Fleet

April 18, 2012

April 18, 2012 -- On April 16, 2012, ART underwent a fleet transformation! Six new ARBOC buses were added to the ART fleet, completing the conversion to an entirely low-floor fleet. ARBOC buses are narrow-body low-floor buses powered by clean-burning compressed natural gas, ideal for use on neighborhood streets. These buses have 19 seats, can accommodate two wheelchairs, and are replacing ten-year-old vehicles that have reached the end of their useful life. Look for the new buses on the ART 61 and 62 routes. With the new buses, ART is now green AND totally accessible!
