Winnebago Industries Inc. is debuting three new products at BusCon Expo 2013 to be held in Chicago, Sept. 10-11. According to a press release, Metro Link models to be unveiled include a public transit, airport, and a CNG (compressed natural gas) powered version that may be used as a shuttle or airport shuttle.
Metro Link’s advanced designs include numerous patent pending features specifically tailored to provide a much quieter, better functioning vehicle with reduced maintenance and improved durability. Metro Link features a one-piece fiberglass roof, a fully welded, tubular steel framework, high gloss fiberglass sidewalls and exclusive frameless windows that offer exceptional performance and reduced longterm maintenance. Metro Link is backed with an industry leading seven-year/150,000 mile structural warranty.
On the inside, the Metro Link offers fiberglass interior walls and a 78-inch center aisle height and is available in a number of passenger configurations, which make the Metro Link highly customizable to meet the wide ranging needs of the transit and paratransit industry.
Distribution of the new Metro Link will be conducted by Metro Worldwide, a division of the Pritchard Family Companies.
