This batch has the same features of previous batch. These buses have seating for 35 passengers or 28 passengers and two wheelchairs. The seats are in charcoal with yellow grab handles and charcoal backs. The inserts are in Holdsworth Fabrics' YSW24954 moquette. The wheelchair ramp is located at the front door. The rear door uses Vapor vTouch touch bars for passenger operation. Heating, cooling and ventilation are provided by a rear-mounted Thermo King T11 unit, and almost all and passenger windows are of the tip-in transom design. The window after the front door and the last window on the driver's side are of the sliding design. Those windows open a small distance to allow increased airflow throughout the bus if the air conditioning fails. The buses have GFI Cents A Bill fare boxes and Sportworks bike racks.
