About Grande West Transportation Group

Grande West is a Canadian bus manufacturer who designed, engineered and manufactures Vicinity buses. With little competition in the "mid-size" bus range, Grande West has set itself apart from others with the Vicinity bus - a heavy duty mid-size, true community transit bus now in operation in many municipalities across Canada.

The Vicinity is designed with affordability, accessibility and global responsibility in mind. It costs significantly less than a regular 40 foot transit bus, burns less fuel, emits less harmful emissions, has lower maintenance costs and is considerably more durable than cut-away buses which are based on a truck chassis.
