REV Group, a motor vehicle brands manufacturer headquartered in Milwaukee, has begun delivery of 34 compressed natural gas (CNG), low-floor shuttle buses to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
According to REV Group, these 34 vehicles are the first deliveries of a 101-bus total contract that ElDorado National – California Inc. (ENC) will be producing.
The manufacturer says the contract is a mix of the latest generation Axess 40-foot and E-Z Rider II 35-foot low-floor, ADA-compliant shuttle buses. All of the buses utilize CNG fuel and feature extra-wide entry and exit doors for fast and efficient passenger movement.
As noted, the Axess and E-Z Rider II are produced in the ENC manufacturing facility located in Riverside, Calif. Both models meet the latest Buy America compliance requirements.
“We have enjoyed a long-term relationship with the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport,” says Mike Ammann, ENC’s vice president of sales. “ENC has supplied heavy-duty parking lot shuttle buses at the airport for the past 20 years. ENC also recently received a purchase order for the next installment of buses to be produced for the airport. We will be producing 28 of our largest Axess 40-foot buses for the DFW Rental Center.”
Ammann adds, “REV has more than 240,000 vehicles on the road today, including vehicles that fight fires, transport patients, shuttle passengers and unite families across the country. Our goal is to create innovative, specialized products with the highest level of quality that make life easier for people.”
