This ramp was developed specifically for use on Optare vehicles that feature a ‘kinked’ floor. The design of the ramp allows both the moving member and the cassette to follow the shape of the floor.
Following a successful trial, PSV ramps were specified on every new bus ordered by a leading UK operator. Because of the unique floor on some Optare vehicles the standard PSV product was not compatible. The ramp is a good example of the custom operator and bus builder requirements that PSV are able to work with.
The ramp is vehicle specific but is a good demonstration of the design and production capabilities of PSV.
