The majority of the fleet!

OK it's "Baby bus" ( a demo 2008 CAIO 38 pax w/bathroom & luggage bays! That we tried out for a week!) Then there is #737 ('95 Setra S215 HDH), then #722 (my faithful 45' '95 Setra S217 HDH), & # 742 & # 747 (the "twins" identical consecitive VIN #  '05 Setra 417's )

The Caio aka "Baby Bus" almost looks like a baby Setra!

Great photos of the fleet, but best of all is the advertisment lettering. The color appears to jump out at you. And I am an engineer, said to live my life in shades of grey...

There is business needs out there and to get the order, sometimes you just need to ask.

Good Job.

Bk,

I googled the Caio, just a sucker for those 35er's. I see a very smallish pedal to the left of the steering column. What is this ?

Does not look very manly man like....


Fleet look great,

Nice fleet.  Very impressive.  I think the little pedal on the little bus is for the tilt steering.  Freightliner has been doing that for the last several years.  It is actually an air actuated valve on the Freightshaker.  Or maybe it is a little foot rest to hold the driver in the seat while making those high speed lane changes that are also known as wake up calls.

You are correct! It just happens to be exactly that as this thing is built on a Freightliner chassis!   Grin  BK  Grin
