Light & Medium Duty Buses & Shuttles


Empire Bus carries the complete Eldorado line. Eldorado has a long-standing reputation for quality and after-delivery support that is second to none in the bus business. Eldorado manufactures light and medium duty mid-size commercial buses utilizing Ford, Chevrolet, and International (IC) chassis for public transit, paratransit, airport, parking, hotel/resort, group tour, assisted living, church and college/university markets.

The Eldorado “Aero” line of cutaway buses offers FRP composite steel reinforced bodies that are far more resistant to corrosion than steel or aluminum bodies, and the two-stage undercoating process exclusive to Eldorado provides superior undercarriage protection. The Eldorado Advance and Advantage cutaway buses feature tubular steel “cage” construction with
non-corrosive FRP exterior panels.

All Eldorado’s are available with stainless steel stepwells and door mounting frames to further protect your bus from salt and corrosion.

10 to 36 passengers, Eldorado has you covered!


The Eldorado Advance is built on the Ford Transit chassis. The Transit chassis is ideal for shuttles, senior transportation, and small group travel.

The Advance can accommodate up to 14 passengers or 12 seated passengers with 2 wheelchairs. Built with Eldorado’s tubular steel “cage” construction with non- corrosive FRP exterior panels, the Advance is a durable and comfortable bus with an automotive feel for your drivers and passengers.

Since the Advantage’s 2012 inception, this affordable mid-size bus was one of the first fully-integrated steel cage bodies produced at Eldorado. Built on the Ford E-Series chassis, this model can be customized to comfortably seat up to 29 passengers — or with ADA compliant floor plans that can accommodate up to 20 seated passengers with 2 wheelchair positions.


Since its introduction to the industry in 1985, the AeroTech has been a best seller and a benchmark for all others. The rust proof steel reinforced fiberglass composite body provides for lower temperature absorption, improved sound insulation and significant shock absorption minimizing damage and increasing safety in the event of an accident.

Not to mention sleek modern curves with a gelcoat shine that will shimmer for the life of the vehicle with very easy maintenance. The Aerotech is available on the Ford E-Series and Chevrolet 3500 chassis with seating for up to 25. ADA floor plans are also available with seating for 16 with 2 wheelchairs.
