Is the ElDorado National Axess a flop?

Recommended Posts

While the ElDorado EZ Rider II is the best-selling medium-duty bus, the ElDorado Axess heavy-duty bus hasn't been a great seller. While Valley Metro in Phoenix once placed a big order for the Axess, the order was cancelled due to the economy. When the contract was re-bid, it went to New Flyer.

 

Most of the Axess' customers seem to be airport shuttle operators, which is ironic since that is what the EZ Rider II's main intended market, while the Axess is mainly intended for the transit market.

 

So, can the Axess be called a flop? What is the reason for the Axess not selling to transit authorities?

You can't call it a flop until it actually flops!:)
