Accessibility begins on the outside, though, and the Transit Minibus boasts a number of clever features making it easier than ever to get in and out. The wide kerbside sliding door is accessed via the low power operated side step, while non-slip flooring and ideally positioned passenger handles reduce the risk of any accidents occurring during entry or exit.
There's nothing worse than having to endure a long journey wedged between suitcases and backpacks. The Ford Transit Minibus now comes fitted with overhead storage racks for extra convenience, adding to the already spacious seating compartment.
If passenger comfort is important, then driver comfort is absolutely vital. The Transit Minibus leads the field when it comes to the driver's cabin. There are practical features like the integrated fold-down table in the passenger's seat, while the refined and polished finish makes it the most professional minibus on the market.
The quality of the Ford Transit Minibus means you'll benefit from greater durability and efficiency and save money in the process. Every component is designed to last. Service intervals are set at 2 years or 30,000 miles, with the Minibus able to go further and for longer without the need for regular maintenance.
The Duratorq TDCi engines feature common rail technology, offering excellent performance as well as outstanding fuel efficiency and lower emissions - resulting in reduced costs for both you and the environment.
There's also a Shift Indicator light on the display panel which suggests when to change gear to enhance fuel efficiency. A helping hand to make each journey more cost-effective.
"With a layout designed for optimal space and practicality, the Ford Transit Minibus offers unrestricted access to the spacious interior. The single/double seat arrangement - with 2 seats on one side and one seat on the other - allows for the optimum number of passengers to ride on-board without compromising on space and comfort."
