These buses were cooperatively
designed as a compromise between
operators' needs and manufacturers'
desires, in order to rapidly assure a
new generation of acceptable buses
without conflict. Their low floor, wide

enhance operations. The placement
of components was designed to
reduce operating costs. The high cost
of fuel mandated a fuel efficient engine.
The DMC-80, in serial production, will
be manufactured in the United States.
It sets new standards for engineering
excellence, innovation, reliability,
passenger comfort, economical
operation and ease of maintenance.
