A-Z Bus Sales Delivers Special Needs Buses to Amusement Parks, Assisted Living Facilities and Adult Day Healthcare

Colton, CA (Vocus) November 10, 2010

A-Z Bus Sales, Inc., a leading provider of transportation solutions, today announced broad support for industries requiring buses for special needs individuals in wheelchairs. A-Z Bus Sales provides shuttle vans and buses with ADA equipment in support of both “stop and go” and long-trip transportation. Customers include: amusement parks, assisted living facilities, adult day healthcare facilities, tour/charter operators, and hotels/casinos.

A-Z Bus Sales recently provided special needs buses to a well-known amusement park located in Southern California. The Arboc Mobility “Spirit of Mobility” is a true, low-floor vehicle that was purchased to transport amusement park guests with wheelchairs from various parking lots to the front gate. The Arboc bus was specifically chosen because all passengers, those with or without wheelchairs, board and exit the bus using the same door, equipped with an entry ramp that is deployable at various ground or curb heights. The Arboc design benefits these guests through an increased level of dignity because it allows them the same boarding experience as the bus riders without wheelchairs. The Arboc design also benefits park operations because the passenger loading and unloading times are shortened by up to 40% when compared to a bus with a traditional rear-side wheelchair lift.

The Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District (TVHD) in Tehachapi, California, an assisted living facility, recently took delivery of a Hybrid Electric-powered Glaval Universal Bus to transport up to 8 of their long-term care residents with wheelchairs plus 2 staff members. A-Z Bus Sales assisted TVHD to find the right bus and complete the special forms, needed to qualify for a purchase voucher under the California Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP). “A-Z Bus Sales had the right bus product for our needs and although we received quotes from multiple bus dealers, A-Z Bus Sales had the best price,” says Christine Sherrill, HIPAA Grants Accreditation Manager, Tehachapi Valley Healthcare District. “The A-Z Bus Sales team was very responsive throughout the process and I highly recommend them to other organizations looking to purchase a bus.”

Also benefiting from special needs buses from A-Z Bus Sales are adult day healthcare facilities. A-Z Bus Sales has provided special needs buses to ADHC facilities such as Casa Pacifica, in San Diego, California to provide point-to-point transportation for their clients, from their residences to the day facility. “Casa Pacifica has worked with A-Z Bus Sales for about 8 years in purchasing both new and used buses,” says Luba Vaisman, Administrator. “A-Z Bus Sales stands by their product and always provides quick response and good service, including warranty repair issues.”

“A-Z Bus Sales continues our mission to provide quality-built, custom buses to a variety of industries, and maintain customer-focused service,” says Ed King, Director of Sales & Marketing, A-Z Bus Sales, Inc. Mr. King adds, “We want prospective customers to feel totally at ease with working with us, knowing the diversity and caliber of our existing customers. We want prospective customers to understand that just as our existing customers have validated our solutions and service and have come to trust us as their preferred bus dealer, that they too can have the same positive experience in working with us.”
