Multi-modal solutions

Multi-modal solutions present the unique work environment and appropriate controls associated with fixed route bus and demand services. The accuracy of the presentation within the driver’s area for each distinct driving discipline promotes positive, consistent training throughout the learning process. Tasks will be performed the same whether training occurs within the classroom using the simulator or over the road using the service vehicle.

The MB-1000 Bus Simulator is a testament to the innovative solutions FAAC provides to the transit training industry

With more than 220-degrees field-of-view capability, replicated dash controls, and a dynamic optional motion system, instructors get a well-equipped educational ‘toolbox’ in a cleverly designed, smaller physical footprint and at less cost. Combined with FAAC’s transit operator curriculum, the MB-1000 is a powerful training platform.

  • Expansive field of view (accurate)
  • Adjustable inset mirrors
  • Choice of generic or replica cab

FAAC’s award-winning Transit Simulators are designed exclusively to serve the transit industry.

Bus Driver Training ScenarioThe MB-2000 delivers a fully customized training experience. Real working physical mirrors are combined with lessons that emphasize the purpose and proper use of each mirror to accomplish critical training objectives. Cabs can be configured to match the precise layout of controls, indicators, gauges, and switches as found in your actual fleet vehicles. The most expansive and accurate field of view – geometrically correct through 330 degrees – enables trainees to look past 90 degrees to observe key reference points.
