“SMART has been installing American Seating products in our buses for over thirty years.

In 2014, we purchased 20 Gillig hybrids with the stylish BRT design. This was also the first time we had the new stainless steel Vision® seats installed. The positive feedback from our riders was immediate. Besides being one of the most comfortable seats we’ve ever used, the Vision seats have a very clean look and brightened up the interior of the bus. Not only does this seat look good, but clean up couldn’t be easier. The seat never looks dirty. Last summer we received 59 new Gillig BRT designed buses and 80 more this summer. All of these buses were ordered with the Vision seat. We just ordered 40 more Gillig buses and expect them to arrive in late 2018. Rest assured these buses will also feature the Vision seat. I highly recommend any agency wanting to get a leg up on their competition to install American Seating’s Vision seating.”

Keith Taylor, Suburban Mobility Authority for Regional Transit (SMART)

“American Seating’s Vision is a great seat, the best of the best in the industry.

The sound structure, and vandal resistance features make it easy to maintain and our riders love it!  The design and comfort of the seat is as impressive as the durability and quality of the product.  We are extremely happy with Vision.”

Joe Monti, Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA)

“The Vision seat is a superior product over other available offerings.

Its unmatched quality is ideal for our ridership, as it has greatly enhanced the appearance of our buses with its all-polished finish and sterile look. Our riders also appreciate the maximized personal sitting space and superior comfort. Vision is a well-built, durable seat that has a structurally sound, continuous one-piece frame. NO COMPLAINTS, A MUST HAVE for hassle-free maintenance.”
