CCW finalizes rehab bus contract for Iowa's DART

Posted on November 10, 2015

Complete Coach Works (CCW) completed its contract with Iowa’s Des Moines Area Regional Transit Authority (DART) to rebuild six articulated low-floor buses to help provide exceptional service to DART’s customers.

The 60-foot low-floor buses are replacing high floor buses and include newly installed ramps, remanufactured power trains, transmissions, engines, brakes, and are equipped with two ADA-compliant wheelchair positions.

Scott Reed, maintenance manager at DART, said this project was essential for DART because six buses were in need of replacement. He said that new bus “purchases would have had to be spread over, five years, but this enabled us to do our complete replacement within one year.”

Reed stated his satisfaction with the complete project, saying “the project went very smoothly, very much as planned, we are very happy with the final product… CCW has been very helpful, they had people on-site during the whole delivery, from bus one to bus six.

Besides being used on original high volume routes, the buses will also help Des Moinesians enjoy the state fair.
