Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and Minority Women Business and Enterprises (MWBE)


RIDE Coach and Bus is proud to provide Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (DBE) and Minority Women Business and Enterprises (MWBE) the opportunity to participate in state and local procurements for the sourcing of components and materials in the manufacturing of our World Class All-Electric Buses and Coaches. The objectives of the DBE and MWBE program are:

  • To ensure that small DBE and MWBE firms can compete fairly for federally funded transportation-related projects.
  • To ensure that only eligible firms participate as DBEs and MWBEs.
  • To assist DBE and MWBE firms in competing outside the DBE and MWBE programs.
