NJ TRANSIT issued a purchase order for year four of its six-year contract to manufacture and deliver 183 Commuter Coaches to Motor Coach Industries (MCI)

MCI will begin production of year four coaches starting in September of 2019. The MCI Commuter Coaches will be powered by a Cummins X12 clean-diesel engine, which generates less noise, fewer parts, greater fuel economy, and reduced exhaust emissions that comply with the latest Clear Air Act amendments. The coach features a 57-seat configuration, is Wi-Fi ready, seatbelt-equipped, and compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

MCI has served NJ TRANSIT since 1983, delivering 2,944 high-floor commuter coaches over the past three decades. In 2015, MCI was awarded a new six-year contract for a total potential order of 1,222 fully-accessible, ADA-compliant commuter coaches, of which 550 have been delivered to date. MCI also provides field service for the coaches from its service center located in Blackwood, N.J., and spare parts support from the NFI Parts distribution center in East Brunswick, N.J.

NJ TRANSIT is the third largest provider of bus, rail, and light rail transit in the U.S., linking major points in New Jersey, New York, and Philadelphia. The agency operates a fleet of more than 2,200 buses covering some 255 routes. With its full complement of buses, trains and light rail vehicles, NJ TRANSIT completes over 277 million passenger trips each year.
