ORBT vehicles are spacious – 50% longer than our longest bus – and articulated (that’s the accordion in the middle). Plus, we’re adding features that you asked for, which will increase comfort and reduce what we call “dwell time,” or the time a bus spends at each station, which means ORBT gets moving faster:
Raised station platforms enable easier, more accessible boarding – no climbing, no stairs.
After purchasing your tickets at the station, you’ll be able to board through any door.
We’ll have auditory and visual cues for upcoming stops, making ORBT more accessible and convenient for everyone.
BIKES ON BOARD
Your bike rides for free – just wheel it into a bike rack on board.
COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS (CNG)
ORBT vehicles will be fueled by CNG, reducing harmful emissions.
Wi-Fi on board the vehicles will keep you connected while you travel.
In short, they’re accessible for everyone – riders, wheelchairs, bikes, strollers, droids. You’ll know exactly where you’re going, and you’ll be comfortable until you get there. Stare into space! Read a book! Knit us a scarf! Whatever it is, let us do the driving.
