Stratford Transit 9764-9768
In May 2011, Stratford city council approved the offer by MTB Transit Solutions for five refurbished secondhand buses at a price of approximately $90,000 each; almost as much as one new bus. The purchase of these new buses will make Stratford Transit's fleet fully accessible. The buses were acquired in July 2011.
The buses have seating for 35 passengers with spaces for wheelchairs available by folding seats. A new Ricon flip-out wheelchair ramp was installed at a widened front door (52 inches) by MTB, and the ramp at the rear door was removed. Mechanical components were overhauled and the exterior was repainted and decalled into Stratford's livery. New flooring was installed and the buses were repowered with new engines and transmissions.
These buses were mainly used as school specials but were found in regular service at times when needed.
