Most Requested Features on A Bus

Every customer is unique and so are their needs. Some customers require all of the bells and whistles that can come on a starcraft bus and some customers only need the bare necessities. Determining what features your organization needs can mean the difference between a good ride for your passengers or a great ride! Below is a list of the most requested features on a bus:

  • Overhead Storage

The storage above the seating is a great place for purses, backpacks and small carry on luggage. It is not usually large enough for full size suitcases. The overhead storage also comes with overhead air-craft style lighting that allows each passenger the ability to control the lighting over their individual seat.

  • Reclining Seats

For long trips, reclining seats are highly sought after. The recline angle is similar to that on an airplane seat which makes long trips much more enjoyable.

  • Side Slider Seats

This feature might be THE most popular feature on all buses. This feature allows the aisle seat to slide 3″ towards the aisle offering much more hip room between 2 passengers. This extra room also makes longer trips much better.

  • Arm Rests

Having arm rests on the bus provides relief for passenger’s arms and shoulders. Customers LOVE this feature as well.

  • Altro™ Flooring

The standard flooring on buses is usually a black ribbed aisle. This is the most economical flooring, but is also the hardest to keep clean. Dirt, crumbs and other things get caught in the grooves and make it very difficult to clean.  Altro™ flooring is slip resistant and is a breeze to clean. It is a GREAT upgrade over standard ribbed flooring.

  • Upgraded Air Conditioning

At Carpenter Bus Sales, we outfit our buses with adequate air conditioning on every bus we sell, however depending on your geographic region, having an upgraded air conditioning can come in handy. In southern states where temperatures can top 100º during the hot summer months, the right air conditioning can make a world of difference.
