Volare, a business unit of Marcopolo S.A. and the Brazilian leader in the production of light passenger vehicles, will deliver 34 new units of the Volare School Bus V8L model to the Unicoop Cooperative in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais. Mini-buses will be used to transport students with physical disabilities in the public network of the capital of Minas Gerais.
The vehicles have been developed with a differentiated internal configuration to offer total accessibility and attend the students with physical disabilities. They feature 10 seats, which three of these are exclusive to PPD'S (People with Disabilities). "Volare's commercial department and Agra Motors, our dealership in Belo Horizonte, have been providing and servicing this important demand," explains Sidnei Vargas, the commercial manager of Volare.
Launched in 1999, the Volare School Bus was the first Brazilian model specially designed for school transportation in Brazil. Today, it has become a national reference. Its robustness ensures safety for passengers and its every single detail was developed to better meet the needs of transportation from student´s homes to the educational institutions, reducing school dropout.

The model has school seats, aluminum floor, enlarged door to facilitate the access of wheelchair users, mobile upper windows and two air fresheners in the ceiling.
