MCI delivers 54 Commuters to Denver RTD

Posted on March 20, 2013

The Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) took delivery of 54 Motor Coach Industries’ (MCI) Commuter Coaches.

Engineered to provide a comfortable, safe ride, the Commuter Coach also offers ease of maintenance and low total cost of operation. Data show the model offers 42% greater seating capacity at a cost that's 15% lower per seat than a comparable transit bus. Independent testing also revealed the MCI Commuter Coach to be 10 times more reliable than the closest competitor, according to the company.

RTD’s new Commuter Coaches are each equipped with a wheelchair lift and an ACTIA multiplex system with an ergonomic driver dash and the latest clean-diesel engine technology for near-zero emissions.  

Altogether, Denver RTD has more than 1,000 buses in its fleet. The newest coaches are replacing an equivalent number of 1998 MCI D-models.
