Our bus system design experience extends far beyond conventional buses. We have assisted agencies in obtaining many types of vehicles. From the Advanced-Design buses of the 1980s to the latest hybrid-electric buses, Lea+Elliott has helped transit providers successfully deploy new technologies. In addition, we provide leadership in bus technologies, including articulated, trackless, trolley, dual-propulsion, and guided buses. Our engineers are pioneers in developing and applying alternating current (AC) propulsion drive systems. We maintain an exhaustive bus equipment database that provides current, comprehensive data on bus manufacturing techniques and facilities throughout America and Europe. We also have design staff that has worked directly for transit authorities. They bring to our team sensitivity and appreciation for the needs and expectations of our bus transit clients.
