The Arboc Spirit of Freedom (known as the Spirit LP until late 2011) is a low floor cutaway bus for the shuttle and paratransit market. The chassis used is the GMC/Chevrolet 3500 or 4500 van chassis. Similar in design to the Arboc Spirit of Mobility, the Spirit of Freedom is advertised as a more "simple" and "affordable" version. An identifying feature of the Spirit of Freedom from the Spirit of Mobility is the front door. The Spirit of Freedom has a slightly wider front door that is not at an angle toward the cowl, but is straight.

In late 2014, the bus received a facelift with new tail lights, a more sleek swept, destination space, along with the option for flush-mounted windows. The diesel chassis was discontinued in 2016.
