AXESS

THE SAFEST HEAVY-DUTY
WORKHORSE AVAILABLE.

Whether your needs call for a bus that can be multi-functional or serve regular fixed routes, Axess is the answer. It’s the only transit bus in the industry that’s federally certified for 3-point seat belts. This heavy-duty bus features a low floor that can be adapted for any application: airport shuttle, college transit, you name it. Optional ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps are available on the front and center doors. The Axess has also completed rigorous Altoona testing to provide the safest environment for passengers in our fast-moving world.



DIFFERENT RIDES, BUT THE SAME BAR-SETTING STANDARDS.

No matter which ENC model you choose, over 40 years experience goes into every vehicle. We put our buses through the most rigorous testing in the industry. We meet or exceed all federal and state regulations. And don’t forget, after the sale, we have hundreds of service locations with thousands of trained technicians to keep you and your customers moving.

WHICH FLOORPLAN WOULD YOU LIKE?

All ENC buses are built with flexibility in mind. You can choose from any of these popular floorplan options, or we’d be happy to customize one to meet your individual needs.
