MCI names service provider for Winter Olympics

Posted on January 21, 2010

MCI tapped Western Bus Parts, its service affiliate in North Vancouver, Canada, to assist motorcoach operators with maintenance, repair and OEM parts availability during the Vancouver Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

MCI Service Parts is working closely with Western Bus Parts to assure parts are available when needed. In addition, there will be a limited number of pre-owned MCI coaches on site for short-term lease in case of emergencies. Western Bus Parts will have extra technicians on staff as well as two service trucks, one with an onboard generator, to assist operators with battery issues.

MCI will also have members of its technical solutions team who will assist with parts and technical support on site.

Western Bus Parts, which has a strong relationship with MCI that goes back to the 1970s, is a full-service mechanical repair facility with multiple bus lifts. Services include electrical, brakes, HVAC, glass installation, diagnostics and all other routine repairs and maintenance procedures.
