NY: MTA Gets 54 2012 MCI Commuter Coaches for Express Service

MTA New York City Transit and MTA Bus Company have relied on MCI Commuter Coaches for more than a decade, operating more than 900 MCI coaches in its fleet of 5,600 buses.

Its newest MCI coaches, delivering over the next few months, feature the same amenities to which passengers have become accustomed, including plushy upholstered forward-facing reclining seats, 29 inches of leg room, personal reading lights and air flow controls.

The new coaches also come equipped with advanced features such as electronic stability control and a fourth-generation ACTIA multiplex system for simplified diagnostics. Like all MTA New York City Transit MCI Commuter Coaches, these latest models are ADA compliant and come equipped with the newest clean-diesel engine technology with a Cummins ISL engine and Allison transmission powertrain.

“We’re very pleased to be delivering 54 Commuter Coaches to MTA New York City Transit,” said Patrick Scully, vice president of sales and marketing, MCI Public Sector. “MCI Commuter Coaches provide the most reliable and cost effective vehicle solution to New York City Transit while simultaneously providing the highest level of passenger comfort for NYCT’s riders.”
