LA orders up 84 MCI Commuter Coaches

The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation has signed a contract for 84 MCI Commuter Coaches, powered by CNG. The 40-foot coaches, which will be the first MCI models in LADOT’s fleet, will replace a majority of the 94 older diesel buses that currently carry Commuter Express passengers. The order includes an option of 11 more coaches after deliveries begin in the third quarter.

Los Angeles has one of the longest and most successful programs for combating air pollution. The new MCIs meet 2010 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California’s California Air Resource Board standards.

“It’s a tremendous honor for MCI to join LADOT’s fleet and we’re particularly glad to make our debut with the nation’s only CNG over-the-road highway coach that’s Buy America compliant and Altoona-tested,” said Michael Melaniphy, vice president of MCI’s Public Sector Division. “We’re pleased to bring our model to a city that’s had a green transportation record longer than any other.”
