The new coaches are equipped with wheelchair lifts and feature reclining plush seating for 49 passengers, overhead individual air-flow controls, reading lights, luggage compartments and an audio system. They also include audio and video security surveillance systems and bicycle racks.

Mass Transit Agency Director Tom Brown said the new commuter coaches are in service on the island's longer routes between Hilo and Kona; and Waikoloa and Ka'u.

The County of Hawaii, which obtained funding for the purchases through federal grants, also has an order for two additional MCI coaches that will be delivered in 2010.
