MCI adds service locator option to Emergency Roadside Assistance program

Posted on July 11, 2016

Motor Coach Industries (MCI), a subsidiary of New Flyer Industries Inc., announced improvements to MCI’s Emergency Roadside Assistance (ERSA), making it the best source for customers to get service 24/7. A newly created service locator available on the MCI Companion App, or from the MCI website, identifies all service locations available in any pinpointed location.

At the same time, MCI added resources to the MCI ERSA call center and enhanced the call routing system. When using the ERSA hotline of 800-241-2947, callers now have the option of talking to an MCI technical expert or an MCI responder for emergency roadside assistance.

The service locator can be accessed from the MCI website, here, or directly through the MCI Companion App, available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The service locator tool requires the last five digits of the motor coach VIN number. Once the number is entered, the user can search by service for engine and transmission repair as well as for towing and relief coach assistance.

The complete list includes more than 1,800 service suppliers. The list names six MCI Service Centers, more than 200 Wheeltime service locations for engine and transmission-related issues as well as Cummins coach-friendly support network, Detroit Diesel and Caterpillar locations.

MCI was the first in the industry to offer ERSA in 2004, establishing and managing an in-house call center at the Louisville parts warehouse distribution center. Recently, MCI increased internal resources and staff to improve the quality of call routing and weekend coverage.
