Happy New Prímo!
Now there’s even more fast, frequent, dependable Prímo service on the road. VIA’s Prímo 100 and new 103 service feature high-capacity vehicles, improved fare collection systems, and controlled traffic signals to move riders more efficiently with frequent service during peak times.
Prímo vehicles offer space for two wheelchairs, one new self-restraining rear-facing wheelchair space (60-foot buses only) and the standard forward facing wheelchair positions.
Forward-Facing Wheelchair Position
VIA operators are required to secure all riders using the forward-facing wheelchair positions using a four-point securement system. When boarding the bus, please let the operator know if you plan on using the forward-facing position.
Rear-Facing Wheelchair Position
The rear-facing position does not require securement or assistance, which offers greater independence, and makes it easier and faster to get on and off the bus. When using this position, push yourself all the way back against the cushioned support, apply your parking brake, and fasten optional seat belts if desired.
Riders with Bikes
The 60-Foot Prímo vehicles can accommodate three bikes inside each vehicle. The bike rack is located at the rear of the bus and requires riders with bikes to board from the rear door. Once on board, simply roll the front bike tire into one of the slots and allow the top roller to come over the front wheel. Once the bike is secure, proceed to the front of the bus to pay your fare. The 40-foot Prímo Vehicle features an exterior bike rack on the front of the bus.
