CCW completes St. Louis refurb work

Posted on June 7, 2016

Complete Coach Works (CCW) completed a contract to provide seven refurbished low-floor buses to Metro Transit (Metro) in St. Louis, Mo.

The buses underwent a complete refurbishment at CCW that included the power train and suspension, wheelchair fold-out ramps, and complete interior and exterior rehabilitation.

The seven buses Metro acquired will primarily function to support the St. Louis Cardinals’ Redbird Express during the Cardinals’ home games. When they are not being utilized for the games, they will be integrated into the active fleet of Metro’s East Saint Louis facility.

“This has been a joint effort to bring more value to the city of St Louis and taxpayers more bang for their buck,” says Jay Raber, midwest regional sales manager at CCW. “We’ve worked with Metro before on various projects and have a very strong relationship with them.”

In previous contracts with CCW, Metro St. Louis bought 10 buses for the St. Clair County Division and 15 refurbished articulated buses for use in St. Louis on routes with the heaviest passenger loads.
