AXESS-FC

MEETING REAL WORLD NEEDS WITH ZERO EMISSIONS.

It’s the hybrid bus version of the Axess and where public transportation should be going. industry should be going. Fueled by hydrogen, it never needs gas and the only emission coming from the tailpipe is water. It’s also the only hybrogen bus in the industry that’s federally certified for 3-point seat belts. It features a heavy-duty low floor that can be adapted for any application: airport shuttle, college transit, you name it. And like its brother, the Axess, the Axess-FC offers optional ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps. It’s also completed Altoona testing and passed numerous side impact and roof crush tests to insure passenger safety.



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.
