The Humanity First Shelter Bus is a Prevost coach, manufactured in Quebec. The coach has had many lives, from operating as an inter-city coach for the Quebec region, to being converted into an executive hockey coach to transport teams across North America. The coach is now in its third life and has undergone extensive exterior and mechanical repairs to bring it to the streets of the Greater Toronto Area.
Features of ShelterBus:
We have raised close to $40,000 for our first vehicle conversion.We still need donors to complete our fundraising goal. Each vehicle conversion cost $100,000 roughly. We plan to convert a fleet of coaches and transit buses for social causes across Canada.
The Shelter Bus exterior is made up of blue and white colours of the parent charity Humanity First. As well, the windows have special 3M film minimizing light going into the sleeping area but still allow individuals to see out. Moreover, information about the charities various programs are visible.
A lounge for 4 individuals to warm up and have a meal before resting on the coach.
