Exciting Developments in Paratransit: Cincinnati Metro Unveils New Frontrunner® Accessible Vehicles

At Frontrunner® Bus, we are proud to announce a significant achievement in public transportation accessibility—a recent collaboration with Cincinnati Metro has led to the launch of 10 new Access paratransit vehicles, designed and manufactured by Frontrunner®, with state-of-the-art accessibility features.


Cincinnati Metro's new kneeling suspension system is a feature that allows the vehicle to lower its height, making it easier for passengers with mobility challenges to board and exit the vehicle.

Innovative Accessibility Features

Our Frontrunner® vehicles come equipped with an impressive kneeling suspension system. This innovative feature allows each vehicle to lower, facilitating easier boarding and exiting for passengers with mobility challenges. Additionally, these vehicles feature a new ramping system that replaces traditional lifts, ensuring a smoother and more efficient boarding process for wheelchair users and individuals using mobility aids.


Commitment to Passenger Comfort

This initiative is part of Cincinnati Metro's broader commitment to prioritizing the needs of all riders, as echoed by Darryl Haley, CEO/GM of Metro, "Metro continues to prioritize the needs of all riders across every line of service. By incorporating these new features from Frontrunner®, we are ensuring that our passengers with disabilities have a comfortable and convenient travel experience."
