I believe there is legislation that requires all future buses to be low floor. Some ADA requirement or something, but I'm not completely sure.

I think the legislation need to think more about this,now I know that lowfloor helps disable people get around but I just think that legislation don't want to pay wheelchair lifts.

There is no requirment to buy low floors. NJT is currently recieving an order of NABI 416 High Floor buses.

It's an international thing. Many cities around the world are doing this. It's the ADA thing and also for cleaner fuels. Car bodies for urban buses will most likely be low floor now.
