In the post COVID-19 world, agencies such as CAT seek ways to mitigate the risk to its passengers and drivers. In doing so, CAT has partnered with CCW to provide them with the utmost protection and deliver a more comfortable passenger, and driver experience. The 60-foot articulated vehicles will provide more space for riders to enhance social distancing. The rehabbed buses will also improve the reliability of bus service throughout Harrisburg, Pa.
Work will be performed at CCW’s headquarters located in Riverside, Calif. The buses will be equipped with Cummins Recon ISL engines and rebuilt Allison transmissions. Upgrades include new driver seats, reupholstered and repainted passenger seats, new interior and exterior LED lighting, and ADA-compliant wheelchair ramps. Additional work includes new brakes and suspensions, steering components, and destination signs.
