Increased accessibility, passenger safety and comfort, fuel efficiency and technology enhancements are just a few of the bells and whistles the new rides offer.
Comparing these buses with Calgary Transit’s retiring fleet is much like comparing apples and oranges - a difference customers will surely notice and appreciate.
