Grande West Transportation is proud to have partnered with Alliance Bus Group, our exclusive US distributor, to produce FTA Buy America compliant Vicinity Buses in Atlanta, Georgia.

Alliance Bus Group's existing facilities, staff, and deep knowledge of bus technology provide us with a solid foundation upon which we are now producing Buy America compliant Vicinity buses.

Grande West is the Transit Vehicle Manufacturer of record with the US FTA and responsible for all the necessary compliance with the Federal Government and Buy America requirements.

We are proud to dig our roots into Atlanta Georgia, where we will provide local jobs and economic stimulation for many industries which support our US manufacturing facility


The Department of Transportation is committed to maximizing the economic benefits of the Obama Administration’s historic infrastructure investments through Buy America provisions that keep American companies healthy and families working.

Buy America provisions ensure that transportation infrastructure projects are built with American-made products. That means that Department of Transportation investments are able to support an entire supply chain of American companies and their employees.


The Vicinity was tested and ranked "Best in Class" in the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Bus Test Program at Altoona, Pennsylvania

The Altoona test is an internationally recognized tough testing regime, as it essentially performs 12 years of a New York City heavy duty cycle upon completion of the testing. It allows customers to measure performance and estimate life cycle costing of the vehicle.

USA regulations require all new bus models used for mass transportation revenue service and purchased with FTA funds to complete an Altoona Test. The primary focus of the test program evaluates the structural durability and integrity, reliability, performance, maintainability, safety, noise, and fuel economy.
