Bus Wash System

Hydro-Chem Systems is the premier bus wash equipment manufacturer of automated bus wash systems designed for mass transit buses, trolley buses, school buses, and more.

We prefer to use our touchless cleaning technology when designing an automated bus wash system for school bus fleets. The typical brush system often cannot clean a vehicle without moving the mirrors or potentially leaving areas unwashed. In addition, a brush system can even result in needing additional physical labor to finish the job. An HCS automated bus wash system will clean the entire bus in less than 90 seconds.

Hydro-Chem Systems customizes every bus wash system

For transit buses, school buses, or trolley buses. Whether it is an automated brush wash, touchless wash, or an automatic hybrid fleet wash system, our bus washing equipment is built to deliver trouble-free performance for many years.

A hybrid bus wash system offers a transit fleet the best of both worlds. Brushes are very effective on the flat side of a bus and reduce the cost-per-wash, but are less effective in the wheels, as well as the front and rear of the bus.

Our unique design, along with superior engineering, combines touchless technology for these areas, as well as automated brushes for the flat sides. Every wash system is carefully designed to eliminate labor and maximize the return on investment. With the HCS wash you can clean your transit vehicle in less than 90 seconds.
