Kiessling Transit Passenger Sedan - Ford Fusion

Passenger Sedans

Our passenger sedans are versatile, economical and extremely safe vehicles and can accommodate a variety of transit service needs. With a four-person capacity, Kiessling’s sedans are a good fit for 7D transportation for school children, small group travel, HST/Paratransit single adult trips, or a ride to or from the airport.

Kiessling Transit Passenger Minivan - Dodge Caravan

Minivans

We selected Dodge Caravans for our minivan fleet based on their excellent safety record, comfort level, durability, and additional available features. These minivans are suitable for ambulatory (non-wheelchair) passengers who need demand response service and adults who require curb-to-curb transportation to and from daytime programs, as well as airport and college shuttle services.

Kiessling Transit Passenger Van - Ford Eco Transit

Passenger Vans

These Ford Transit Passenger Vans are Kiessling’s largest available non-wheelchair vans and are typically the most effective and efficient transportation option for groups of up to 12 people. Unique specifications include a raised roof, a wide center aisle, and risers to assist with vehicle entry, which all help to make the ride comfortable, safe, and stress-free for our passengers.

Kiessling Transit Standard Wheelchair Van - Ford Eco Transit

Wheelchair Vans

While our Ford Eco Cutaway Wheelchair Vans are used primarily for paratransit services, these vehicles are also excellent for 7D (school) transportation, shuttle services, and larger private parties. These wheelchair vans are highly customized with features such as a side wheelchair lift, modular flooring, additional heat/AC venting, raised roofs, extended wheelbases, and a spacious center aisle for ease of movement.

Kiessling Transit Large Wheelchair Van

Large Wheelchair Vans (LightningHybrid Technology)

Kiessling Transit operates the largest fleet of wheelchair vans equipped with innovative hybrid vehicle technology in the world. 72 of our Ford Eco Cutaway Large Wheelchair Vans are equipped with LightningHybrid technology, a hydraulic hybrid energy recovery system designed for medium-sized and large urban vehicles, which saves fuel and reduces harmful emissions.
