Prevost wins NYCT contract

Posted on April 1, 2011

[IMAGE]Prevost-X3-45-Commuter-Coach-2.jpg[/IMAGE]Prevost was awarded a contract by MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) to manufacture 90 Prevost X3-45 motor express coaches. The pilot vehicle will be delivered in July and the other 89 coaches are expected to be delivered between October 2011 and January 2012. The contract between Prevost and NYCT also includes, structural integrity testing, tailpipe emission profile testing and training.

NYCT awarded the contract to Prevost to test the coaches for durability, reliability and lifetime value. The X3-45 coaches will be used in a demanding commuter application, which requires reliable vehicle performance.

The X3-45 coaches will include Volvo D13 engines and Allison transmissions.

In addition, the service of these coaches will allow for NYCT to verify that the X3-45 coach meets the standards of the NYCT New Bus Qualification Program. Through the structural integrity validation, Prevost is able to provide NYCT with a 12-year structural warranty. NYCT operated a similar Prevost coach in 2008 out of their Castleton and Yonkers Depots, with favorable results.
