MCI staff will host a hospitality tent, manned with staff and technical experts from 3:00 p.m. to midnight each day during Pope Francis’ visit to Philadelphia Sept. 26 to 27. MCI’s tent will be located at the Lincoln Financial Stadium on the north side of Pattison Avenue in Lot T.

Drivers are invited to stop by the MCI hospitality tent for complimentary coffee and donuts, with opportunities to learn about MCI pre-owned coach inventory, parts specials, training on engine regeneration and wheelchair lifts, and more.

MCI will have its service truck standing by, along with the availability of a tow truck. All service must take place within the parking area due to the anticipated gridlock and limited vehicle movement around the city.

Contact MCI’s emergency roadside assistance number at 800-241-2947 for all other roadside emergency situations.

At the same time, MCI’s Blackwood, N.J., location, closest to Philadelphia, will have extended hours and will open on Saturday, Sept. 26, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We’ll have a service advisor, service supervisor, parts availability with mechanics ready for routine maintenance and required repairs,” said Alan Tibaldo, MCI service center manager in Blackwood.

More than a million people are expected attend the Philadelphia events.
