Benefits Of Transit Buses
Are you looking for a way to make your transit agency more efficient? Our in-stock buses are perfect for helping you keep up with the demands of your riders. Our buses feature comfortable seating, ample storage and fuel efficiency. Plus, our buses are powered by dependable engines, which make them ideal for long trips.
There are many things to consider when choosing a transit bus. First and foremost, you want to ensure that your passengers will be comfortable throughout the journey. That means providing ample space for wheelchairs, as well as comfortable seats with generous legroom and air conditioning to help keep everyone comfortable in hot weather.
Some factors to consider include:
- Wheelchair Securements: A transit bus needs to have the latest technology to ensure the wheelchair passengers are transported safely. Make sure your restraints meet federal recommendations, namely WC18 and WC19
- Large Wheelchair Lift Platform: With wheelchairs increasing in size, make sure your wheelchair lift platform is 34” wide or larger
In addition, minimizing operational costs is also very important. Fuel efficiency is a major factor in operating costs for transit buses. Fuel costs can account for up to 30% of the total operating budget, so it’s important to reduce fuel consumption wherever possible. In addition to reducing weight, aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance are key areas where you can improve your bus’ fuel efficiency:
- Weight Reduction: Lightweight materials such as aluminum have been used extensively in recent years to help reduce vehicle weight on both the chassis and bodywork of vehicles.
- Aerodynamic Drag Reduction: A sleek design minimizes air resistance by smoothing out bumpy surfaces and minimizing sharp edges (like those found along rooflines). This design reduces wind resistance when driving at high speeds, which means less power needs to be used by the engine to keep up with traffic flow!
- Rolling Resistance Reduction: Using low-friction tires that don’t need much pressure inflation before use (and thus save energy), significantly reduces rolling resistance compared with traditional ones made from rubber compounds filled with small particles called “carbon black,” which increases friction between road surface contact points during the contact period.
What To Look For In Senior Living Transportation
For senior living facilities, our buses are a great way to provide transportation for your residents. Our buses are designed with safety in mind and feature comfortable seating and ample storage. Plus, our buses are equipped with wheelchair accessibility, making them perfect for transporting your residents. If you’re looking for a way to transport your residents, the best place to buy buses is at Schetky® buses. Our buses are fully accessible and equipped with everything needed to keep your residents safe on the road, including wheelchair lifts and seating for wheelchairs, plus ample room for walkers, canes, or other mobility devices. We also offer a variety of storage options so you can keep medical supplies close at hand during trips.
Wheelchair lifts are found on most buses and allow individuals who use wheelchairs to ride the bus. Wheelchair ramps are also available, and both options allow your residents to easily attend community outings.
The seating capacity of the Schetky Buses can be tailored to fit your community’s needs. It’s important to know your senior living bus’ seating capacity because it will determine how many people are allowed on board at once, and how many wheelchairs can fit inside.
The average bus has seats for about 14 people, but some models have more than 20 seats, and others have fewer than 10. The number of available seats depends on what kind of vehicle you choose: school buses generally have more than 30 seats, public transit buses usually have fewer than 20, and long-distance coaches can hold as few as 6 or 7 passengers per trip (depending on whether they’re air-conditioned).
Consider whether or not your elder care transportation service offers bench-style seating versus individual seats, along with other factors like legroom and height, when determining which model would work best for your needs. Our buses are a great way to transport your residents, and they’re designed with safety in mind, so you can rest assured that your loved ones will be comfortable and safe on the road.
Additionally, we equip all our buses with wheelchair lifts, making them perfect for transporting those with limited mobility or who use wheelchairs. Our vehicles also have ample storage space to ensure that all of their belongings can fit comfortably within them while they travel from one place to another.
