REV Group has yet again anticipated its industries’ growing needs, this time answering demand in the transit bus segment with its latest introduction of an all-new brand — World Trans. This new brand joins seven other bus manufacturers to create an impressive REV Bus Group portfolio of industry-leading products. The introduction of World Trans also falls on the heels of another REV brand addition, Frontline Emergency Vehicles, which like World Trans, answers new demand but in the emergency market.

Engineered to be lighter, stronger and safer, World Trans gives customers a quieter, more fuel efficient transit bus with less waste in both wide- and narrow-body designs. Already, World Trans has begun producing the T Series, a narrow-body model built on a Ford Transit cutaway, available with a gas or diesel engine. Interested dealers can get more information on the T Series by completing the World Trans’ Request for Information form.

By mid-September, World Trans expects to unveil the E Series on Ford E-450 with a 6.8L gas engine. Following the E Series rollout, the new REV brand will introduce the G Series in October, a nimble bus on a GM 4500 chassis with a gas engine. The T Series will be manufactured in South Hutchinson, Kan., alongside Collins, a sister bus manufacturer. The E and G Series will be built in Salina, Kan., at ElDorado, another REV bus brand.

Based on decades of industry knowledge, World Trans has designed these products to answer almost any basic bus need that a customer might require:

• The T Series, available now in a narrow-body design, available in 22- and 24-foot models with capacity up to 18 passengers, and the only bus in its class with a 12 passenger and two wheelchair configuration. Built on an impressive Ford Transit chassis, the World Trans T Series features the largest view-out windows and external storage in the industry, while its exclusive one-piece tubular roof bow design provides unmatched safety. For added durability, the series features a galvanized steel structure for superior strength and rust prevention.

• The E and G Series will offer 22-, 24- and 26-foot models. Seating capacity will range from 12 to 25 passengers. These two lineups feature unique modular construction, which allows for World Trans to offer a 60-day lead time, far surpassing the typical 90- and 120-day norm. Despite these impressive lead times, World Trans does not sacrifice durability. Like the T Series, both feature galvanized steel construction.

All three series offer popular configurations, like perimeter seating, rear luggage space or a rear passenger lift. World Trans also offers a number of options, including backup camera, colored flooring and rear heating or cooling systems.
