MCI delivers D4500s to Penn. transit agency



Capital Area Transit, the transit agency serving the metropolitan area of Harrisburg, Penn., took delivery of two MCI D4500 Commuter Coaches purchased with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 5311(f) funding.

The new coaches serve the agency's Elizabethville and Shippensburg commuter routes into Harrisburg. Both represent rides of more than 45 minutes.

The new coaches, which replace older transit models, feature comfortable seating for 57, free Wi-Fi, entertainment system, a Braun wheelchair lift, a GFI farebox and an eight-camera surveillance system. They are powered by Detroit Diesel Series 60 engines and Allison B500 transmissions.
