This 334-page report, prepared for the State of Ohio's 16(b) (2) program, describes three kinds of small transit vehicles: passenger vans, light transit vehicles, and modified school buses. The van series includes modified mini-vans, standard vans, and converted vans. The light transit vehicles, which are also referred to as chopped vans, body-on-cutaway van chassis, and body-on-chassis vehicles, involve building a vehicle body on a heavy-duty cutaway van chassis, or a light or medium duty truck chassis. The modified school buses are altered to provide a more spacious interior for a specified number of passenger seats and wheelchair positions than do converted vans or light transit vehicles. The document also includes detailed descriptions of the various kinds of ancillary equipment available, and costing data for a range of vehicles and accessories.
