MCI to supply 92 commuter coaches in Atlanta, US [free access]

June 5, 2019

The State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA), the agency responsible for providing Xpress mobility and public transportation operations in the 12 counties surrounding metropolitan Atlanta, has placed an order with Motor Coach Industries (MCI) for 77 D4500 and 15 all-accessible D45 CRT LE commuter coaches.

 

Both models are compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA’s) Buy America clause, and have completed the FTA’s Altoona tests. They will be equipped with fuel-efficient X12 clean-diesel engines and 110-volt power outlets with USB ports at every passenger seat. MCI will commence the delivery of the D4500 coaches in August 2019. The delivery of the D45 CRT LE model is scheduled to begin in the first quarter of 2020.
