Ideal for operating in narrow one-way streets

The Aerolite is a 19’-21’ mid-size bus built on an 88” narrow body that provides increased maneuverability in confined spaces and streets in urban areas for fixed and on demand transit and paratransit service, and commercial applications such as airport parking, hotel, corporate shuttle, church and assisted living. Designed for 13 or fewer passengers, the Aerolite is an ideal non-CDL option for replacing standard passenger vans.

The smaller Aerolite is the perfect replacement for a standard passenger van, but don’t let the name fool you. With the same structural durability as its big brothers, the Aerolite offers great maneuverability in confined operating conditions and can be easily configured to not require a commercial driver’s license. The Aerolite is very customizable for passenger comfort and the dual rear wheels provide excellent road stability.  Our “Aero” line is built using a steel-reinforced composite body construction that is highly resistant to impact, rust and corrosion. Side and rear impact testing demonstrates the durability and strength of the “Aero” body composite construction.

The Amerivan PT Dodge conversion is fully ADA compliant providing single and multiunit owners with a durable, cost efficient alternative to larger vans.

The Amerivan PT Dodge designs have passed all applicable FMVSS/CMVSS crash testing requirements, are Altoona tested and Federal Transit Administration approved for all Buy America applications. Spacious, durable and comfortable, the Amerivan PT Dodge delivers unmatched safety, maximum flexibility, ease of operation and is the best value for your money.

Made specifically for the transit market, the Amerivan PT Dodge is equipped with 60” of interior height at mid and front cabin. The sturdy ADA 31” manual foldout ramp has an easy to use swing out gate feature standard for quick and clear access for all passengers. An optional swing in or fixed ramp makes the Amerivan PT the ideal choice for the transit market.
