Gulf Tran Bus, a new affiliate of Gulf Stream Coach Inc., is entering the shuttle bus industry with three new products.
Gulf Tran will build the shuttle buses on the Ford E-350, Ford E-450 and Ford E-550 chassis and showcases its new products at the BusCon show in Chicago Sept. 15-16, according to a news release from the Nappanee, Ind.-based RV manufacturer.
“We are excited to be entering the shuttle bus industry,” said Brian Shea, president of Gulf Stream’s Motorized Division. “We are receiving extremely positive feedback from the dealers and suppliers about the prospect of having Gulf Tran supply bus vehicles to the many vibrant businesses. We have added several high-quality employees to our roster and expect to immediately have an impact at the BusCon show in September. Attention to detail, innovative product and strong customer service will continue to be our focus.”
Gulf Tran is in discussion with prospective dealers to carry the new products.
“Every dealer we have been in contact with has shown a tremendous interest in our entrance into the shuttle bus industry and selling our products,” said Claude Donati, vice president of the Motorized Division. “We plan on having the best dealers in the United States represent our Gulf Tran products.”
