The VT3 represents the state-of-the-art future of the shuttle bus industry. The Turtle Top VT3 is constructed on the Ford Transit 3500 HD cutaway. Lightweight materials such as 6360 aluminum (aircraft grade) are used exclusively for the cage structure which provides superior strength. They also conserve enough weight necessary to remain under 11,000 GVWR for the chassis.
This patented, extruded cage structure sets the standard for the current and future designs of Turtle Top products. The aerodynamic exterior and comfortable interior have also been redesigned featuring great driving visibility and sophisticated automotive styling. Passenger counts from 1 to 17 can be accomplished within weight requirements. This all translates to a lighter-weight vehicle with improved fuel economy that is a pleasure to drive down the road.
