Gillig Recalls Phantom Transit Buses

September 23, 2009

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Gillig Corp. is recalling about 2,000 2001-2009 Phantom transit buses equipped with Lift-U wheelchair lifts. 

The outboard ramp barrier poses a possible safety risk to passengers; it may fold in toward a lift passenger, possibly injuring the passenger's feet, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Gillig will notify bus owners, and Lift-U will make the repairs free of charge. 

Lift-U can be reached at (209) 838-2400. Gillig can be reached at (800) 735-1500.
