The Flyer Industries D900 was a transit bus similar in design to the D800B but featured more squared-off edges and a flatter front end. It had new rectangular headlights and a new windshield with the close side tilted inward. The front door was wider than on older Flyer models in order to provide adequate space for installing a wheelchair lift. After revisions, the D900 became the D901.
