The Arboc Spirit of Liberty is a low floor, economical, rear-engined shuttle bus. Arboc began development of the Spirit of Liberty in 2010 and unveiled the prototype at the 2011 APTA EXPO. The first production model Spirit of Liberty was sold to Northern Arizona University in February 2016. It was sold through Creative Bus Sales.

The Spirit of Liberty is built on a custom designed Freightliner chassis, known as the XB-A. With the engine at the rear and door right at the front, the bus offers better passenger-driver interaction than a cutaway.[1] To reduce weight, the bus uses a one-piece structural composite floor molded in vinylester that is bonded and bolted to a tubular steel chassis.[2]
