Metro Express BLW90

Type III Ambulance

Ford E-350 / Chevy G3500

144" x 90" x 70"

A reinvigorated, minimalist design that can take on BLS and ALS operations. With a layout inspired by the BL90, the Medix Metro Express BLW90 Type III offers a cost-effective, controlled-option workhorse with the added flexibility of a CPR seat configuration.

Modular Design

Plus powder-coated aluminum cabinet faces in place of cost-prohibitive formed aluminum cabinetry.

Easier to Service

Most replacement parts ship same-day should you encounter an accident.
