VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 22, 2015) - Grande West Transportation Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BUS) ("Grande West" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that we have entered the Altoona test program for our 30 foot Vicinity bus.

In order to comply with Federal Transit Authority (FTA) funding requirements, Grande West is confirming that our 30 ft model Vicinity bus is now undergoing the stringent USA Altoona test program. Completion of the test is a mandatory requirement for transit sales in the USA that are federally funded.
