Complete Coach Works (CCW) has begun bus delivery of rehabilitated articulated buses to West Covina, Calif.'s Foothill Transit.

The contract, which includes repowering and repainting 30 artic buses, is expected to be completed this winter.

“The 60-foot-long buses are being repowered with cleaner burning engines that will be fuel efficient and require less maintenance,” said Kevin O'Brien, CCW general sales manager.

“The project also includes the inspection and replacement or repairing of the cooling and transmission systems, refreshing the suspension, and some exterior body work and paint,” said Roland Cordero, Foothill Transit's director, maintenance and vehicle technology.

The buses are being repainted with Foothill's new logo and paint scheme. This is the second livery project CCW has undertaken for Foothill.

The new Foothill livery features waves of bright blue and lime green that swoop along the sides and around the front of the white buses. Foothill's mountain peaks logo, a nod to its proximity to the San Gabriel Mountains, extends up from the blue swoop at the midpoint of the sides of the buses. The design reflects the agency's commitment to sustainability "and being green," Cordero said.
