Bus Maintenance PlatformBusses are meant to be “in service” on the road,

not in a shop. But routine maintenance is a part of keeping the fleet on the road and safe!

A Bus Rooftop Maintenance Scaffold Platform allows your workers the safety needed to get up there and preform the required tasks quickly and safely.
