The Orion Bus Industries Orion IV or People Mover was a specialized transit bus produced from 1985 to 1989 by Orion. The bus was unique in that it used liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), a rare choice of fuel, and operated in a tractor trailer configuration.

The only Canadian agency to operate the Orion IV was the Niagara Parks Commission, which purchased 13 tractor and 12 trailer units for its People Mover shuttle service.

A lone tractor unit was built for the New York City Office Of Emergency Management for use as a command center vehicle, numbered NYC 266.
