 Can we design a commercial Double Decker sightseeing bus  that will  carry 40-50 people upstairs but yet let
some sit downstairs too,...  Just like the true European open top Double Decker buses that cost over $600.000 new.

How about less than $250,000. by using a new concept on a proven Bus.

We specialize in designing and building higher end luxury Double Decker Coaches.
Ten years ago we wanted to create a Double Decker open top sight seeing bus for the tourist market place.
It had to be built with durability and high quality but yet have low maintenance

We prototyped different chassis but were convinced there was only one way to go Ö
Our concept has always been quality but with a budget in mind ..

We Offer two models to work with,                                                                             Top of Page

                                                                                                                          Top of Page
This is a Open top Double Decker with a lower roof design seating passengers for upstairs only ..
No seating below.

The next model is a true Open Top Double Decker with two usable decks .

Our coach is a modified transit bus designed to carry 50 people and will seat some passengers downstairs in the event of rain .
This coach was designed around safety and has a very low center of gravity.
It was built to be used for many years with a light maintenance budget.

These buses are heavily built and are great candidates for our rebuilding process.

What is a Rebuilt Coach ?
We remove, rebuild and replace all working drive train components. 
                             Top of Page
Rebuild and install the more popular engines, transmissions, rear ends for that coach .

Brakes, bearings, bushings, the complete  braking system, and the air suspension is rebuilt too .

This bus when finished will drive and ride as a new one because thatís what reconditioning is.
We take everything wearable and replace it with new or reconditioned components.  


Our Units, Versus a modified Motor Home chassis,                                                      Top of Page
We looked into new motor home chassis as others have. 
However, we really felt there is nothing better than a transit passenger bus for safety.

 RV Motor homes are designed to be used on a part time basis but yet there are companies
building these coaches on this same chassis. They never last long and are plagued with maintenance issues
within the second year .


A motor home chassis is too light and the duty cycle is too short to be used as a commercial Double Decker .
A Bus Chassis will give you hundreds of thousands of miles of good service. See this page about buying Commercial a bus ???

A light duty motor home chassis is designed around 100,000 miles then itís replaced.

Some companies have used this Motor home chassis only to find themselves with an overweight issue with a factory recall.

In one case, the City of New York required one company to park some vehicles until they could be upgraded.
They were brand new but not designed properly.

Below are images of our Destination Sign model ..
The next model will be Without the Sign.

Model 200, Neoplan
