An election bus or a campaign bus is a perfect blend of utility, security, and luxury.

These buses are also used to transport members of the press that are covering the campaign of a political candidate.


In India, there are few companies known as the best election campaign vans manufacturer. The use of the election bus dates back to 1940s when they were used by presidential contenders to travel through different states. Before the manufacturing of the election bus, reporters used to travel in a separate car which left them with very little time to interact with the leaders, however, with the advent of the election buses, reporters could easily travel with the leader.


Political leaders often use the election buses to travel to different destinations where air travel is not possible or required. Party leaders often buy the election buses and decorate them with their party name to increase awareness about their group.


  • ATM Vehicle

With the demonetization drive at its peak, it became difficult to withdraw money from ATMs. This was when various banks identified the opportunity of a Mobile ATM van. The demonetization measures were set up by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to scrap INR 500 and 1000 currency notes from the country’s economy.


Thousands of Indians lined up bank ATMs to withdraw new currency notes. So in this time of cash crunch, some bus manufacturers along with the leading banks in the country banked on the opportunity to design mobile ATM vehicles. Various banks including Canara Bank, The State Bank of India and Punjab National Bank set up mobile ATMs near hospitals, markets, and old age homes.

These ATM vehicles have been set up to cope with the rush to access the new currency after a ban was implemented on INR 500 and 1000 currency notes. Being mobile, these vehicles are set up at different locations across the city thus helping people withdraw cash for their everyday needs.


Moreover, these ATM vans have also been set up in rural areas where people don’t have access to ATMs. With the success of these ATM vehicles, more and more companies are coming up to help people deal with the situation with ease.
