Advanced Bus Industries L.L.C. (ABI) is a bus manufacturer located in Worhington, Ohio, USA.


ABI was originally Mauck Special Vehicles (MSV), a manufacturer of a futuristic bus-type vehicles. The MSVs were outfitted with leather interiors, televisions, VCRs, Global Positioning Systems, etc. In June 1998, a group of transit industry executives purchased the company. The new owners expanded the product line offering a newly designed 30-foot model to appeal to the mass transit industry. The name of the company changed to Advanced Bus Industries, L.L.C.




ABI buses are lightweight heavy-duty, low-floor transit coaches that incorporate the latest technologies in fiberglass body panels, 100% 304 stainless steel frames, four-wheel disc brakes and fully independent air suspension. The TSV-30 was designed using the TSV-25 as a model. The design of a low floor system makes entering and exiting the bus easier for all passengers, including the physically challenged. Also, the independent air-ride suspension enhances the vehicle's handling characteristics and offers a smoother ride.

Engines are Cummins coupled with Allison transmissions. Testing of the first unit exceeded 500,000 miles and 12 years of service life.
