Starcraft Bus – Elevate Your Ride

Starcraft Bus is a division of Forest River, Inc., which is one of the largest recreational vehicle and commercial vehicle manufacturers in North America. Starcraft is located in Goshen, Indiana and was acquired by Forest River in 2001. Starcraft provides affordable transportation solutions ranging from transit, hotel and airport shuttles and retirement centers to medium size buses ideal for tour bus and shuttle bus operators and many other commercial applications. They are committed to building reliable transportation for those who depend on their vehicles to safely move groups for personal and business purposes.

Committed to Integrity

Starcraft Bus places a strong emphasis on safety and incorporates various safety features into its bus designs. This includes features like safety flooring, LED lighting, and sturdy construction. Starcraft Bus has established itself as a reliable manufacturer in the commercial bus industry, offering a variety of vehicles that cater to different transportation needs.

Shuttle Buses with all the Options

The Bus Centre is proud to offer Starcraft Shuttle Buses to our customers and we deliver buses to customers Canada-wide. We stock their more popular units, particularly Allstar and MVP models. These models cater to different passenger capacities and specific requirements. Customer orders are welcome and we can build to your specifications.

The Bus Centre also stocks paratransit units that give flexible configurations with the addition of convertible fold-down seats. Often designed as 8+4 capacity, these units can hold up to 8 passengers and 4 wheelchairs but can easily convert to 16+2. Communities and municipalities appreciate the flexibility this kind of design provides. Built with a heavy-duty Braun wheelchair lift, this Starcraft bus is designed with accessibility features to accommodate passengers with mobility challenges.

Safety Seating Just Got Better

Shuttle buses are now required to have 3-point seatbelts on every seat in the bus. A three-point seatbelt has a single strap that goes over the passenger’s shoulder and diagonally down across the chest, and another strap that goes across the lap. It’s important to make sure that all passengers are properly secured to prevent or minimize injuries in the event of an accident and these seat belts do just that.

One of the most popular ordering options we see at The Bus Centre is no longer available. Due to increased safety requirements as mandated by law,

Safety Considerations For Your Passengers

Seats that contain 3-point seatbelts are designed to meet CMVSS (Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) requirements. In a car, 3-point seatbelts are attached directly to the frame of the vehicle. However in shuttle seats, the belts have to be attached to the seat itself, which requires them to be reinforced. This increases the weight of seating.

Cargo space, even when empty, must also be rated at a set amount of weight per seat, adding to the gross total. This additional seat and cargo weight have increased the overall projected gross weight, surpassing the maximum the chassis is designed for. Manufacturers have had to reduced passenger capacity to compensate. The overall benefit of extra safety makes this trade-off well worthwhile. Starcraft Bus continues to design innovative buses that meet and exceed safety requirements. There’s peace of mind knowing your passengers are secure.

Consider Some Great Luggage Options

If you are looking to maximize passenger seating while still including storage, The Bus Centre has options! Rear luggage buses are still possible with slightly fewer passengers. Luggage racks and cargo shelving are all possibilities. Starcraft Bus also builds buses with convertible spaces, utilizing fold-down seating and cargo netting space dividers to transform your bus to meet the needs for each trip.

Look no further than The Bus Centre for the information you need to make an informed purchasing decision. Because we specialize in buses, it’s our priority to stay up to date on manufacturer product availability and any changes that may affect our industry. That’s our service to you, our customer.
