Learn More About Buses: Van Hool's TDX Series

While double-decker buses can be a fun and novel addition to tour companies’ fleets, one reason they are not more popular in North America is their size. The larger a motorcoach the more operators pay for fuel. And higher passenger capacities often lead to longer loading and unloading processes—making them a hard sell for the efficiency-minded U.S. tourism industry.

Enter the Van Hool TDX. It is not only ADA-compliant but also features multiple entry doors for more efficient loading and unloading—even when filled to its maximum 81-person capacity. For a vehicle of its size, it is remarkably fuel-efficient, and the TDX does not skimp on the small details that make drivers and passengers more comfortable.

  • Centralized restroom
