CCW wins university refurb contract

Posted on March 2, 2015

Complete Coach Works (CCW) was awarded a contract from Lynchburg, Va.’s Liberty University to refurbish and rebuild three New Flyer buses for on-campus student travel.

By purchasing remanufactured buses, including a two-door, 60-foot articulated bus and two 40-foot buses, Liberty University will receive fully renovated buses in like-new condition for less than half the cost. The complete restoration is not only cost-effective but a retrofit bus takes a fraction of the time to deliver, ensuring the college’s transit services remain active and continually provide students with ample transportation options.

The project will enrich the student experience by  carrying passengers across campus, utilizing the transit service intra campus circulator. The service expresses Liberty’s commitment to enhancing student access and mobility. CCW is devoted to further establishing its success and is confident the university’s first purchase will prove gratifying.

Liberty University offers students, faculty and staff connector shuttles and bus services on and off campus. The transit services are available 150 hours a week with over 25 buses on nine routes. Using GPS tracking, the transit service offers its students a way to connect to bus routes and schedules.
