Vehicle Description

ElDorado National EZ Rider II

The E-Z Rider II continues to be one of the best mid-size, heavy-duty low-floor bus in the industry. Designed and built in the USA, the E-Z Rider II offers unmatched floor plan flexibility with ADA compliant wheelchair ramps. The ramps can be placed at the front, center or even both doors for superior paratransit flexibility. With hundreds and hundreds of options, the E-Z Rider II is customs built to meet your exacting needs. With the latest in exterior styling, the E-Z Rider II will separate your fleet from the ordinary.

Different transportation applications require different solutions. The E-Z Rider II offers passenger boarding flexibility available on no other low-floor bus, with available front and/or center doors and ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps. Does the route require clean fuel technology? The answer is E-Z. The E-Z Rider II is available with transit-tested diesel, propane (LPG), liquefied (LNG) and compressed (CNG) natural gas fuel systems. Is passenger capacity important? The E-Z Rider II can accommodate up to 41 seated passengers on a 35 foot bus. No other low-floor bus even comes close!

Tired of trying to run a lightweight bus in a heavyweight duty-cycle? With heavy-duty Arvin Meritor axles, large S-cam air brakes, and a transit-proven and crash-tested, monocoque safety cage, the E-Z Rider II is designed and built to take real-world punishment year after year. Designed and manufactured in the United States, the E-Z Rider II is the low-floor solution.
