JanBus, the world’s first front-engine, single-step entry, full-flat floor bus, is a vehicle specifically designed for urban transport. It provides several patented features that maximize passenger safety and substantially enhanced operating economics for the STUs. JanBus has received tremendous response from STUs – it will contribute over 2000 buses to JNNURM-II. We have also received orders from the international market for the bus and soon JanBus will be running in many countries. We have always been at the forefront of providing world-class products first to our fellow Indians and remain committed to making lives simpler and safer for every Indian.”
