ElDorado National-California (ENC), a subsidiary of REV Group and manufacturer of heavy-duty transit buses, received an award of contract to supply 23 Diesel Axess 30’ buses to Pace, the suburban bus division of the Regional Transportation Authority in the Chicago metropolitan area. This is the first release of a five-year contract with a provision for 164 Diesel Axess 30’ buses.
The contract award is estimated at over $80 million in revenue over the contract life, along with related optional vehicle features, spare parts and training. ENC has worked with Pace for over 20 years, providing 665 vehicles to their fleet including ENC’s Diesel E-Z Rider II BRT and Diesel / CNG Axess BRT models.
ENC’s progressive Axess bus was the first transit bus in the industry that was certified for 3-point seat belts. The heavy-duty bus also features a curb-level low floor that can be adapted for any application, as well as offering ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps in the front and center doors. The Axess bus is Altoona tested for 12 Years/500,000 miles, providing the safest environment for passengers.
“We are very pleased to continue our long-standing partnership and commitment to Pace to provide them the best buses designed for their communities’ needs,” said Tony Wayne, Vice President & General Manager of ElDorado-National California. Pace provides transportation for Cook County, Lake County, Will County, Kane County, McHenry County and DuPage County; and as of 2018, had an annual ridership of over 35 million people. “ENC is known as the industry leader in customizing customer’s requirements for fixed route transit buses and we are thrilled to add the 30’ Diesel Axess to our fleet,” said Larry Braun, Division Manager of Pace.
