Padbus has been unhappy about the use of wheelchair lifts on coaches used on the intensive Oxford MetroShuttle service so decided to see if there was an alternative. The result is this low entry version of the Plaxton Panther coach. This gives level access to the wheelchair area via a simple fold-out ramp and allows 45 high level seats and under-floor luggage lockers at the rear.
Scratchbuilt using Corgi OOC front and rear ends, aircon pod and drivers cab with seats and wheels from Mark Hughes.
This model is, of course, entirely fictional.
