Crestline to replace St. John’s
GoBus Accessible Transit Fleet


June 28, 2017 – Saskatoon, SK, Canada – Crestline Coach (CCL), Canadian supplier of small to mid-sized buses and worldwide leader in ambulance and specialty vehicle manufacturing, recently delivered the first of (18) new Goshen Impulse units to GoBus Accessible Transit in St. John’s, Newfoundland.  

GoBus Accessible Transit is the St. John's area para-transit system operating within the municipalities of St. Johns and Mount Pearl. Their mandate is to provide persons with disabilities and those who are unable to access conventional transit, equal access to a transportation system so as to enhance their participation in all aspects of community life. The goal is to ensure that accessible, affordable transportation is provided in a dignified and respectful manner.

The 2017 Goshen Impulse, on a Ford E350 chassis, is an appropriate choice for St. John’s fleet as its highly accessible design allows for passengers, with limited mobility, to have a wide range of motion and easily maneuver in its spacious environment. The Impulse has superior aerodynamics with a streamlined design, flat exterior walls, a stylized front cap and a fuel-efficient weight rating.

The new buses will be operated and maintained by MVT Canadian Bus Inc. under a service delivery contract with the St. John’s Transportation Commission. Crestline will deliver (18) units before the end of July.
