Trans Tech Bus "Trans Tech" is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Student Safety Transporter and RoadStar and 2008-2014 Student Transporter Aero school buses manufactured January 1, 2007, through September 1, 2014, and equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.
If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Trans Tech has notified owners and Ricon will supply supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began in November 2014. Owners may contact Trans Tech customer service at 1-845-988-2333 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884.
