CoachCrafters wins State College, Pa. contract

Posted on September 24, 2009

CoachCrafters Inc. entered into a contract with State College, Pa.-based Centre Area Transportation Authority (CATA) to rehab 10 CATA buses.

The scheduled work will include the removal and replacement of body skins and repainting the entire exterior of the bus. At the same time, the air system (including valves) will be updated and the air conditioning system will be replaced with a new Thermo-King unit and new motors will be installed.

The interior will also be refurbished with new seat inserts and new air ride style driver's cockpit seating. Additionally, all exterior lighting will be replaced with new L.E.D. type lighting.

While CoachCrafters is completing this work, FAB Industries will be working on replacing worn CNG lines and adding fuel capacity to some of the units.

This project is approved and funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation, through a grant to CATA, under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
