MCI delivers to W. Va. veterans’ healthcare facility

In a salute to the veterans it serves, the Clarksburg, W.Va.-based Louis A. Johnson VA Healthcare System’s two new Motor Coach Industries (MCI) D4005 coaches come clad with patriotic graphics. The new coaches are used in daily scheduled service to transport veterans to the Pittsburgh VA Medical Center.

The new coaches come equipped with wheelchair lifts and the latest clean diesel engine technology for near zero emissions. The coaches were purchased through the Government Services Administration procurement process.

For the new D4005s, Clarksburg VA facilities management services staff worked closely with the graphic design team at MCI.
