The buses will be used by state public school students and are all fitted with a Mobile Armchair Device designed to benefit passengers with reduced mobility.

The device works by positioning a seat outside of the vehicle, allowing passengers with special needs to board and disembark in the seat.

The Iveco Bus models on order include CityClass, WayClass, SoulClass and SeniorClass.

Humberto Spinetti, Iveco Bus Director for Latin America, believes the order could be the largest ever for school buses with special needs accessibility.

“The concept of the project is based on accessibility for passengers with reduced mobility and benefits for the operator, a solution obtained through the innovative Mobile Armchair Device,”

“Our vehicles contribute to the students’ ability to travel comfortably and in an inclusive manner.

“This allows for greater transportation capacity for the cities as well as an economically efficient solution.

“We have the technology and, above all, the desire to collaborate for a fair and more efficient transportation.”

The buses will operate in both urban and rural environments.
