CCW to refurbish 7 St. Louis Metro buses

Posted on October 27, 2015

Complete Coach Works (CCW) was awarded a contract to provide seven refurbished low-floor buses to Mo.’s Metro St. Louis.

“The 40-foot buses will be used in regular service in Metro’s St. Clair County Division in Illinois and to transport St. Louis Cardinal fans to the downtown St. Louis stadium on game days,” said Dale Schaefer of Metro St. Louis. “For a high-profile service like that, we like to use the newly purchased CCW buses.”

The buses will undergo a complete refurbishment at CCW that will include the power train and suspension, wheelchair fold-out ramps, and complete interior and exterior rehabilitation.

“This is our third project with St. Louis Metro in three years,” Jay Raber with CCW said. “They have been pleased with our work in the past and we strive to continue a successful relationship with them.”

In previous contracts with CCW, Metro St. Louis bought 10 buses for the St. Clair County Division and 15 refurbished articulated buses for use in St. Louis on routes with the heaviest passenger loads, Schaefer said.
