If you happen to own a vehicle that has twelve seats, the chances are you operate a bus run for tourists or you have far too much time on your hands in the evenings! Definitely practical and always comfortable, the Ford Transit Bus offers transport that is larger and more spacious than almost every vehicle in its class.
You’ll love the massive one-metre long luggage area accessed via the rear door. And, rear passengers easily enter the Ford Transit Bus through the big slide door at the side of the vehicle. This is the vehicle of choice for businesses that require the need to carry people long or short distances in comfort and superb safety. Climb on board a big Ford Transit Bus, and you’ll see how roomy it is and just how comfortable even the back rows of seats are. The nice cloth material on the seats not only looks nice but is tremendously hard wearing. A Ford Transit twelve-seater bus is perfect for anything from airport transfer services, to ferrying kids around for school, and community group outings.
Based on the LWB frame, the Ford Transit Bus is not only very big on space, but it is very well endowed with the latest safety features. Numerous standard features like driver and front passenger airbags, an anti-lock braking system and individual three-point lap/sash seatbelts for driver and all passengers are clear winners on the safety front.
It’s easy to find a comfy position behind the wheel of the Ford Transit Bus. The single six-way adjustable driver’s seat takes care of that. Well muted road and engine noise make for a relaxed tour bus. Electric front windows and air-conditioning, supportive seats – each with a height adjustable headrest, loads of leg room and shoulder room that a rugby lock would be pleased with, and a single in-dash CD player with AM/FM stereo boasting MP3 audio input means that you have a tour bus that rocks!
Don’t worry about the road holding though – it’s not so rocky. Sturdy chassis and suspension components linked to well weighted steering give the big Ford Transit Bus plenty of poise and control on the road. Massive brake discs, boosted with ABS and EBD technology, haul a loaded Ford Transit Bus to a standstill in no time at all. To provide your passengers with even greater protection, the optional Professional Pack is also available. This features Dynamic Stability Control, Traction Control and cruise control – which in my book is well worth the small amount of extra money that you pay.
Seamless power that comes from a grunty 103 kW Duratorq TDCi engine that boasts a massive 375 Nm of torque provides the Ford Transit Bus with power to cope with a full load of passengers and their luggage. If you need to, a trailer can be pulled behind; such is the strength of the TDCi engine.
Other handy features include: a glove box with A4 hanging file storage, two cup holders and two 2-Litre bottle storage spaces, a rear bumper with a step, an engine immobiliser – and the list goes on.
For stylish and class leading practicality, you can’t beat the Ford Transit Bus.
