Fuel Economy

The objective of this test is to provide comparable fuel consumption data on transit buses produced by different manufacturers. The test is comprised of Business District, Arterial and Commuter phases.

Structural Durability

The primary part of the test program is the Structural Durability Test, which also provides the information for the Maintainability and Reliability results. The test bus encountered no Class 1, 2 or 4 failures. All seven reported failures were Class 3, the lowest among buses in it's class.


Maintenance & Repairs

The objective of this test is to collect maintenance data about the servicing, preventive maintenance, and repair. All significant breakdowns, repairs, man-hours to repair, and hours out of service were recorded.


The Vicinity was born from a need expressed by transit systems looking for a durable, reliable, customer oriented mid-size vehicle at a reasonable price point.
