The use of Onspot quickly becomes a habit and it’s a good idea to ensure that they are ready for you. The safety factor of Onspot is maximized for you and your student’ when they are properly operated and maintained. 

 

1. Engage Onspot in time – Don’t wait until you reach that slippery road section. Engage Onspot before you make a student stop or stop at the traffic lights. In this way you will have traction when you start and you and you reduce the risk of being stuck with spinning wheels. With Onspot engaged your braking power is enhanced which improves safety when stopping to pick up students.

 

2. Both uphill and downhill – Engage onspot before you start climbing a slippery hill. In this way you avoid getting stuck on a slope with spinning wheels. Also engage Onspot when driving downhill in slippery road conditions. With Onspot engaged braking distance and the risk of skidding are reduced.

 

3. If you forget – If you happen to forget to engage Onspot and get stuck in a slippery spot, flip the Onspot switch and spin the wheels up to 5 mph so that the chains are flung under the tires. When the tires grip, release the accelerator pedal until the bus starts to creep forward.

 

4. Keep to the limit – Don’t exceed 35 mph. It is a matter of safety!

 

5. Disengage on dry roads – When the road gets dry you should disengage Onspot. Using Onspot on dry roads reduces the life of the product and accordingly, it increases safety to disengage Onspot when you reach a dry road section

 

Our success is driven by your success 

 

Since 2002, Lewis Bus Group has supplied the Utah Transit Authority with over 800 para-transit vehicles, designed with you the rider in mind. Top to bottom, end to end, each vehicle is carefully inspected for safety, compliance and completeness before hitting the open road so that you know you’ll get from A to B safely and quickly.

 

 

 

Originally purchased specifically as a paratransit vehicle, these buses are now being utilized to bridge the first mile/last mile gap as well. Not sure what the first mile/last mile gap is? For transit riders who must transition from the station to work and home locations just outside of walking distance, these buses are a speedy and cost-effective advantage over difficult geographic limitations, street networks and pricey personal car services.

“Improving access starts with creating urban environments with cohesive pedestrian and bicycle networks that are inviting and safe, with multiple transportation options available.” The big picture of it all comes down to “increasing the number of transit access points and options.”

 

 

 

The buses are built by Glaval Bus, and have room to sit 10 ambulatory passengers or 6 wheelchair riders and one driver. Each vehicle is equipped with a 1,000 lb. side BraunAbility wheelchair lift and Q-Straint wheelchair securements (additional information listed below – Check out these two LBG endorsed companies!) Each bus comes complete with top of the line HVAC systems for the scorching Utah summers and chilly Utah winters, along with a backup camera and Intermotive ILIS System* allowing the driver to comfortably get you where you’re going.
