Durham Region Transit 8975
DRT trialed a 2006 E-Z Rider II MAX demo shortly after that year's CUTA Trans-Expo. They purchased their first new one (8975) in 2008 which allowed them to gradually replace their fleet of ELF cutaways used on the Flag Bus routes in Ajax and Pickering.
8975 had seating for 23 passengers with perimeter seating in the low floor portion and 2+2 seating in the high floor portion. The perimeter seats could be folded to provide space for three wheelchairs. The seats were grey and have unpadded inserts in Holdsworth Fabrics' YSW24954 moquette. This bus featured a wheelchair ramp at the front door and the rear door. The rear door used Vapor touch bars for passenger operation. This bus had a GFI Cents A Bill fare box and bike rack.
