Vicinity Motor Corp. (“VMC”) is a bus manufacturer founded in 2008 with operations in both Canada and the United States. VMC has set itself apart from other bus manufactures in North America by focusing on the “mid-size” bus range with our Vicinity bus product line. Our purpose-built Vicinity bus line includes both medium and heavy-duty mid-sized buses that provide customers with a true community transit bus experience. Today, our buses are in operation serving many communities across Canada and the United States.
The Vicinity was born from a need expressed by transit systems looking for a durable, reliable customer oriented mid-size vehicle at a reasonable price point. Vicinity Motor Corp. responded by designing a purpose-built vehicle with affordability, accessibility, and global responsibility in mind. The Vicinity costs significantly less than a traditional 40’ bus and is considerably more durable than cut-away buses which are built on a truck chassis.
In a large and unsaturated market segment, Vicinity Motor Corp. is capturing sales growth from both the replacement of cut-away buses and the need for transit fleets to find the appropriate balance of vehicle sizes across Canada and the United States.
