The following is one of our current Inventory of Ameritrans 285 buses for sale.

Ameritrans is a quality built bus that is competitively priced. They are one of the few bus manufacturers that only builds on a full cab, providing more strength and durability to the overall bus as well as a seat area for a co-pilot. Buses with a cut-cab and passenger door installed in cab have a weakened structure and normally develop broken frames around this area within a few years.

 The primary AC evaporator for the passengers is mounted in the most efficient location, over the cab, which provides:

  • 75% less refrigerant hose run distance from AC compressor & condenser
  • Warm to cold air exchange is done where needed the most., near the 3 largest heat producers: engine, windshield and passenger door
  • The cold air blows toward the back with the natural flow of air, not against it.

Some states have already passed laws against rear AC units due to low clearance.

While most other brands of buses have flat sides,  while the Ameritrans body has contoured sides for better aerodynamics in crosswinds to help keep it from  being blown all over the road. This is the number one complaint of most shuttle bus drivers.

We also don't rent our new buses for sale out to the public, so you can rest assured that no one has abused your new bus during it's crucial engine break-in period.
