THE GILLIG LOW FLOOR BUS

The GILLIG Low Floor bus was introduced in the mid 1990’s and it immediately raised the bar for competitors while lowering the floor for transit riders. It started with the experience and performance of the GILLIG Phantom and then incorporated the latest needs, requirements and technologies, to produce one of the best low floor buses of today. It’s more accessible, more serviceable and more reliable, and now it too is called a fleet workhorse with a reputation of excellent customer satisfaction.

The GILLIG Low Floor bus starts with a construction grade stainless steel chassis for strength and corrosion resistance, and adds a patented aluminum body for weight reduction and additional corrosion resistance.  It incorporates clever ideas such as quick change side skirt panels and side impact crash barriers for serviceability and safety, as well as the latest in electronic controls and conveniences to make it into a desirable product that performs reliably and efficiently, day after day.

The Low Floor is available in 30', 35', and 40' lengths and 102" width. It has the widest front aisle and the most wheelchair maneuvering room in the front vestibule for easy and quick entry/exit. A wide stance suspension and an ergonomic driver station pleases both passengers and operators, and large access doors and a logical layout makes the mechanics happy. Altoona tests confirm the Low Floor design to be of the highest reliability, efficiency, serviceability, and performance (e.g. gradeability, fuel economy, quietness, etc.), and explain its strong reputation of customer satisfaction.

The GILLIG Low Floor is available in various configurations such as transit, shuttle, airport and suburban, as well as in variants such as Hybrid and BRT. The Low Floor is the “sliced bread” of transit!
